>The Register Citizen will be doing something special this Memorial Day.
In Monday’s paper, we are printing a special section listing the names and hometowns of every American soldier who has lost his or her life in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq since 2001.
When you see this in print, I think you will find it sobering and powerful.
For starters, these names, nearly 5,000 of them, printed in small type with nothing else on the page, will take up a full 8 broadsheet pages in our newspaper.
This effort is in no way meant to be political. It’s not a statement of any kind about the war in Iraq or about politics.
It’s about honoring a new generation of brave young men and women who have given their lives for our country.
Pick up a copy of the section in Monday’s paper. We’ll be printing some extras as well, and you can obtain copies next week by contacting our circulation department at 860-489-1450.
