Remembering the Warriors of the Past Part 1

The United States seems to have lost pride in its’ military. There have been 6,726 deaths of our brothers and sisters, since 2001, in the 3 operations (Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation New Dawn) of war. As this took me a while to put together, I only found ONE source who actually put together all of the names of these brave souls who lost their lives while serving our great nation, may it be death by accident or in combat. Military Times has pictures, as well as how they passed and other information, including some that have biographies.

As a country, I believe that we need to know the names of the soldiers that have laid down their lives in service; because we need to honor their service, whether they were killed in action or not. So the list I am providing is by state and date they were killed. Since mainstream media and our government will not honor them, I will.

Please take the time, as I have, to respect those who were selfless enough to want to fight for our freedoms and liberties. May they be at peace with God, and may they know that we will continue to honor them until the end of time.

I will be breaking down the list into parts since it is so long. These are the brave souls that lost their lives between the years of 2001-2002.
