I subscribe to the Army Times, a weekly newspaper for soldiers.  In every edition, they post the names of the men and women who have been killed the previous week in support of Operations Iraqi, and Enduring Freedom.  I would like to start paying tribute to these men and women given the last full measure of devotion to their buddies, and their country.  My prayers go out to the families of these brave Americans.  May God be with them in their time of distress.

Afghanistan:  11 killed  139 wounded

Marine Lance Corporal Abram L. Howard, 21, Williamsport, PA.
