New US bases stop having individual memorial services
[link|http://www.kndu.com/global/story.asp?s=6586120|KNDU]
So many Fort Lewis soldiers are being killed in Iraq the Army base will no longer hold individual memorial services.

Starting next month Fort Lewis says it will hold one memorial a month for all the dead soldiers.

Sixteen Fort Lewis soldiers have been killed this month -- the most of the war, so far.

What a sorry sign of how the war is going.

New I wonder...
...if the fact that having 16 or so memorial services would bring the overall human toll of this so-called war into higher relief...something this "administration" has tried desperately (if unsuccessfully) to conceal.

Could this not so much be a matter of efficacy or economy as it is publicity?
