We Are At War

by bert

I can't explain why, but media and blog reflections on the ending year fall short of conveying what is and has been most important. Here are the Wisconsin soldiers killed in the past year.
UPDATE: Good for the Journal Sentinel editorial board for acknowledging Jan. 1 that the wars still go on, and the cost paid by Wisconsin soldiers last year. (They also pointed out some casualties my source -- U.S.casualties.org -- did not reveal. These have since been added).







Specialist Matthew T. Grimm of Wisconsin Rapids












Lance Corporal Andrew G. Matus of Chetek











Private Jon B. St. John II of Neenah








Staff Sgt. Robert J. Basham of Kenosha











Lance Cpl. Harry H. Timberman of Minong











Private Nicholas E. Riehl of Shiocton











Sgt. Jesse B. Albrecht of Hager City












Sgt. Scott Brown of Brookfield













Sgt. Tyler J. Kritz of Eagle River











Navy Chief Petty Officer Patrick Wade of Manawa











Marine Corporal Matthew R. Zindars of Watertown











Captain Derek A. Dobogai of Fond du Lac












Specialist Keith Nurnberg of Genoa City













Specialist Rachael L. Hugo of Madison











Sgt. Louis A. Griese of Sturgeon Bay











2nd Lt. Tracy Lynn Alger of New Auburn
