In Memoriam

Americans who lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2008

May 26, 2008

Editor's note

The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are regular concerns of The Times' editorial pages, and undoubtedly will be much debated in the coming presidential campaign. Today, however, is not for politics or policy, but rather for honor. And thus we pay our respects to the women and men of our armed forces who have given their lives in defense of this country and its freedoms. Below, those who made that sacrifice from Jan. 1, 2008, through midnight Saturday.

Jim Newton, Editor of the Editorial Pages
