The death toll of American troops in Iraq reached 4,000 Sunday with the deaths of four soliders in an IED attack.

Whatever you think about the war in Iraq as a policy, please take some time to honor these soliders and think about their sacrifice. The Washington Post's Faces of the Fallen project, which also provides a link to observe the sacrifices of those Americans killed in Afghanistan, is an excellent place to start.

Remember that every single one of those fallen servicemembers made a conscious choice to protect and defend our country. You are able to read this blog and click on that link -- or ignore it -- because of that choice they made, and their fellow servicemembers continue to make, every day.
