    one of the finest things ive seen the LA Times do recently 

    is a special tribute to the 491 Californian veterans who have died in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq

    in order to best acknowledge the fallen you can search for them by name, age, high school, hometown, date of death, place of death, cemetery, and several other ways. the most heartbreaking, to me at least, is to see how many were engaged when they died.

    we just launched this today. i recommend that everyone visits it throughout this memorial day weekend because its pretty amazing and sobering.
