A Hillside Memorial to Americans Killed in Iraq

We came upon this makeshift memorial, apparently created by a father and son, and it took my breath away. Over 4000 Americans have been killed in Iraq in the five years since the war began.

I wonder how many hillsides it would take to show the well over 100,000 Iraqi deaths.

makes you wonder indeed.

In Belgium, in the southwest corner we still live with the scars of a war as well. they are there forever. It's insane when you think about it.
