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 -- -- 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
