Outstanding. Watching America's finest taking down terrorists while protecting and sparing innocent lives is nothing short of remarkable. Lunatics aside, Americans can all see something to appreciate about American culture here. Here is a man (presumably a father and husband) putting himself in the line of fire for a total stranger - a child caught in the middle of a horrifc scene of death and carnage. And it has always been that way.

God Bless the Troops.

Your picture collection is fantastic. If only we could get more people to understand what a wonderful and heroic job our men are doing.
Thanks, Jan

Hey, excellent website. A great Iraq resource is Deaths in Iraq. It breaks all of the casualties down by age, race, branch of the military, country, etc.
