    They are so forgotten and they do so much for us to keep us safe.That is so nice of you Ditter.Nancy Grace remembers the ones that have served and died each night on her show.I always watch it and it is so sad that they are not honored like the dim wit stars are.

    The News Hour on PBS also remembers the fallen at the end of each broadcast. Can't get through it without crying, they are either so young, or someone's mom or dad.

    Matthew Weikert is from our town and was in my son's hs class. his sister played soccer with my daughter and I know his parents. it was so sad - our town had quite a huge funeral procession for him. He had a young son - about 8 years old. was so so sad of a time

    Bless those and there Famalies who gave so much.

    Lindsay who....part of the reason, so many have problems see others act worse and get away with it or a slap on the hand.

    I like to watch the News Hour for that reason. Seeing their names and faces helps me to keep things in prospective, and it reminds me to pray for their families. I have a soldier of my own and some of those kids are the very same age as my son.
