Thanks for Memorial

Dear Editor:?

I just wanted to give kudos to the El Vaquero for last issues’ six-page honoring of American soldiers who have died in the Middle East.

Everyday we hear about the war and seemingly accept it; this article made the war a very frightening reality, one that we can not simply turn off the T.V. to avoid.?

The fact that it took six pages to contain all the American deaths gives perspective to how many human lives, military or civilian, the war has taken. This was great piece and should be in every newspaper across the country.
