Leading the way Right

 

To honor our brave men and women in the military, we list below the names of the fallen. This is page 2 of our list.

To see PAGE ONE, please click herePAGE THREE by clicking here, and page four by clicking here.

This post identifies these wonderful souls by name, listing the heroes who sacrificed everything for you and I. This is page two of 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 frequently 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 hereThank you.

We offer our gratitude in prayerful thanksgiving to:
