Go buy this week's issue of Newsweek. You have to, if only so that you can get a sense of how so many of our young people are sacrificing so much, while the rest of us go shopping. And hey, I'm right there alongside you.
This entire issue is about "The Iraq War in The Words of America's Dead."
This section of "Last Letters From Iraq" is enough to make you forget about the reasons we went to war and focus on the troops themselves. It'll tear your heart out, I promise.
