List of Soliders Killed Under Obama

To honor our brave men and women in the military, we list below the names of the fallen. This post identifies these wonderful souls by name, listing the heroes who sacrificed everything for you and I. This is the list author and Conservative American talk radio star Mark Levin spoke of and listed on his website. They gave their lives to protect and preserve our freedom. We thank them, we remember them and we honor them. Unlike other lists you may see, our list includes deaths from both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars as well as other military deaths (including those killed at Fort Hood, Texas).

NOTE: ConservativeAmerican.org also hosts the controversial “Obama Death Count” (which people continue to misunderstand), a running tabulation of the brave men and women who have lost their lives serving in the military since the inauguration of President Barack Obama. One request please: Out of respect to the fallen, this post is not a place to debate the count itself and it is not a place to debate politics. If you’d like to do that, please visit the political post which explains why we are keeping count. You can do that by clicking here. Thank you.

This is page one of our list. You may visit PAGE TWO of the list by clicking here, PAGE THREE by clicking here, and page four by clicking here.

We offer our gratitude in prayerful thanksgiving to:

  18. Pfc. Adriana Alvarez, 20, of San Benito, Texas
    , died Feb. 10 in Baghdad, of injuries sustained while supporting combat operations. She was assigned to the 504th Military Police Battalion, 42nd Military Police Brigade, Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash. — NOTE: We originally reported that Alvarez was the 500th soldier to die under the Command of President Barack H. Obama. This is because we had reported on the February 9th death of Adam J. Ray and had received a report of another death of a U.S. Soldier on the 9th. It now (2/17/2010) appears these two stories were, in fact, one and the same. That would make Adam J. Ray the 498th to die under Commander Obama and Adriana Alvarez the 499th.
  19. Because the following three soldiers died in the same attack, it is not possible to single out one of them as having been the 500th death under President Barack H. Obama. It is fair to say, however, that these three were the 500th, 501st and 502nd deaths since President Obama was sworn in. Staff Sgt. John A. Reiners, 24, of Lakeland, Fla.; died of wounds suffered when enemy forces attacked their unit with an improvised explosive device Feb. 13 in Zhari province, Afghanistan. They were assigned to the 1st Battalion, 12th Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, Fort Carson, Colo.
