Online Living Memorial to Iraq Veterans Unveiled

On the eve of the fourth anniversary of the Iraq War, Brave New Foundation has unveiled the first-ever online living memorial for Iraq vets. It contains 60-second video testimonies from friends, co-workers, and the military colleagues of those killed. Robert Greenwald, the filmmaker who conceived this project, says "No matter what you think about the war, the memorial is a place to honor the brave men and women who have been killed in Iraq serving our nation."

The Iraq Veterans Memorial will be shared across the world via the internet and added to over time, with those wanting to contribute having the ability to upload testimonials to YouTube. For the past two months, Brave New Foundation has been working with numerous Iraq veterans groups to create the memorial.

Someone might have thought that by 2007 we would have found a way to stop killing each other.

Very silly someone.
