Remembering the families of our fallen heroes...

4-year-old William Deem shows off his medal at "A Time of Remembrance" ceremony on the National Mall in Washington. William's father, Army Spc. Michael Deem, died in Baghdad in February 2005. US service members are dying this month at a rate of at least two per day.

Regular readers will note that I occasionally publish photos that remind us of the sacrifices made by the families of our fallen heroes. With war fatigue setting in it would be easy to gloss over the extraordinary sacrifices these families are making.
