Some ranking officers are wondering what to do with the various in-country memorials to the Americans fallen in Iraq.

Perhaps some genius politician will come up with a new memorial in Washington.  That would be nice.

These men and women died for their fellow soldiers, their countrymen and their country.  They joined the military, knowing that part of the job might include dying.  Eyes open, they stood up for America.  God rest them every one.

We don't need plaster memorials.

We need the people in charge to honor the men and women who fight under the standard every day. We need honorable leadership - real leaders who care more about the nation than they do about their petty self-interest.

I know it's asking a lot - and we haven't seen it for some time.

But it's what we need.

Wo, a memorial here would be nice as well.
