Requiem for Fallen Fighters

The Washington Post carries a very nice piece this morning on a church in our neighboring diocese of Virginia

“On the first Monday of every month, the Rev. Robert H. Malm stands before his congregation at a special requiem service and reads the name and rank of every U.S. serviceman or woman who was killed in Iraq or Afghanistan the previous month.

The first thing he notices is that most of the casualties are enlisted men. The officers and the women, those names jump out. But it’s the privates, the specialists, the corporals and the sergeants who are dying in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

Read it all.
