Funeral for fallen hero...

US Army Honor Guard ceremonially carries the coffin containing the body of US Army Cpl. Sergio Antonio Mercedes Saez, who died recently in Iraq, at his funeral in San Pedro de Macoris, east of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, on Monday. Sergio was born in Puerto Rico and grew up in the Dominican Republic. (Photo: Ramon Espinosa / AxP).

I like to publish photos of fallen hero's since the mainstream media has some kind of ban against showing such photos. It is interesting to note that almost 3000 young men and women have been killed in Iraq but we have rarely seen a funeral photo. Maybe this is part of a larger strategy to maintain support for the war.
