WE ARE IN GREAT NEED OF VOLUNTEERS
to help us download the names, faces and obituaries of the dead soldiers for the panels that make up our Honor the Fallen memorial (Photographs of the memorial can be seen throughout this blog.)

Congress and the Iraqi parliament may be taking a break but American and Iraqi deaths continue and so does our work.

If you have modest computer skills, a willingness to contribute some of your time and to become personally involved in documenting the consequences of war, we ask you to email us at nfpofc@optonline.net

I commend your efforts to document the U.S.kia in Iraq. I've personally seen the presentation and it's, well, it stops you in your tracks to begin with. I have a question though. Are there any efforts to document any Iraqi civilian deaths? Not in photographs obviously but in some form. I think it's important, maybe even more important, for Americans to understand the consequences of the actions of their government. We've heard recently that there are now one million Iraqi's who've lost their lives in our name.

I will be attending another protest in DC on September 15th. Here's a link to some information about it. Rather than being organized by one large organization like United For Peace and Justice it will include a broad affiliation of different anti war and social justice groups. It had been scheduled to coincide with the "State of the Surge" report that was originally to have been delivered on the same day by General Petraeus in an effort to garner any additional media attention that might be covering his report in Washington on that day. Unfortunately and all too predictably the Bush admins. announced yesterday that it would be delivered on September 11th. As of yet I haven't seen any shift in plans for the timing of this march.

Just thought to alert anyone who might wish to attend and hadn't heard of it.

Peace,
Michael Long, Southold
