Faces of the Fallen-news stories and military reports

This screenshot from The Washington Post compiles news stories and military reports to assemble portraits of U.S. service members lost to the ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The database, which was recently relaunched with newly browsable features and permalinks, offers both sweeping views of the operations’ tolls and individual profiles of each soldier or Marine who has died. Browsing through, you can view current data on which state has lost the most men and women.

You can click in to a profile, anywhere on the site, to read about the individuals behind those statistics.

After visiting site, I strongly feel that we will never learn from our history.
