News coverage of US military deaths has been almost non-existent since the election. So much so that I, personally, didn’t think there were any.
Prior to the election, US military deaths from Iraq and the Middle East often lead the newscasts, usually with a running tally of total US deaths since the beginning of the Iraq War.
Amazing the difference an election makes.
Out of reverence for our fallen heros, here is a list of those who sacrificed their lives just before and in February of this year. It is a shame they haven’t gotten the same honor of recognition from the news media that others have.
