Speaking of Memorial Day, if you haven’t checked out the Map of the Fallen, do so.  It links death location (by city) in Iraq and Afghanistan with the individual’s hometown.  I was privileged to consult with creator and Google employee Sean Askay last week prior to going public during a visit at Fort Leavenworth.  He even let me adjust some of the location data on where two soldiers in my company died.  He’s done a fantastic job creating a site that is both respectful and informative.  Check it out if you have Google Earth 5.0.
