Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

... and, fine with me, nobody has posted anything. In many other forums the usual flag wavers went berserk (which I find disgusting, as they obviously *need* a day for flag waving and ignore vets all other days except "Veteran Day"...).

Here someone who not just pays lip service:

http://map.mapthefallen.org/oif_oef_casualties.kmz (map download).

Google Earth developer Sean Askay (http://www.blogger.com/profile/00889829827079612019) has put together something truly remarkable for this Memorial Day: It is called “Map the Fallen,” and it uses Google Earth to honor the more than 5,700 American and Coalition servicemen and women that have lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The map, Askay explains, “will connect you with each of their stories—you can see photos, learn about how they died, visit memorial websites with comments from friends and families, and explore the places they called home and where they died.” It’s beautiful, informative — and heartbreaking. Go check it out, now. (Mac users: Be sure to install the latest version of Google Earth.)

Interesting and moving,
