The sacrifice has been worth it. I haven't questioned whether or not it was right to take Saddam Hussein out. I mean, I've questioned it -- I've come to the conclusion that it was the right decision. - George W. Bush
As of today, 3000 U.S. servicemen and women have lost their lives in Iraq.
The New Year will ring in for thousands of families who only know that:
The deceased Soldier’s name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
This is what they will be told.
