Afghanistan Through My Eyes - Memorial Day

It's easy to ignore what today is all about. But while your scarfing your bar-b-que and slamming down your beer I want you to think about the warriors who have died today.

The latest fallen hero:

Army 2nd Lt. Travis A. Morgado May 23, 2010 OEF

There have been 25 deaths in Afghanistan in the month of May alone.

I ask you to take the time to click and read about each and every warrior that is posted on this site. It lists all of the fallen heroes from Operation New Dawn, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.

Even if you just go to this site and scroll through until your heart hurts I know that the next time you look at the American Flag flying you'll have a different perspective.

When it flies in the air free and in it's glory be proud, those red stripes are equal to blood and the stars could be souls.
