Memorials

for the Veterans we've loved and not lost
to honor and remember
we breathe life into you
you are resurrected constantly

We honor and send love to those who have left us/been taken from us. These occupations have caused untold pain and destruction; death is part of that. We have dedicated this site to our beloved friend, Jonny Millantz who left us while the site was being created. We have lost many loved ones. Our work is in honor of their memories, their lives, their friendship and their love. We honor those people we have lost to occupation, post traumatic stress, the military, apathy, the failing VA system... They live on in our hearts forever and we want to share them with you.

    OIF III
    Army National Guard Civil Affairs unit.

    I had become close with the 2 guard units that worked with us during my deployment. They are all great people, more family-like, and just fun and nice. One group gave me the nickname "Turtle", and the other always brought me Cinnabon when they had a mission that would take them to Victory. When Regina and SGT Wiley were hit, she was the driver and he, the gunner. She was unidentifiable.
