Casualties of War – their faces, their stories (also see my page-War in Iraq)

This site is provided by the defense department and is so unique.  It is an interactive look at the American Service members who have died in Iraq and been identified by the Defense Department. 

There is an initial larger picture of a service member whose picture has a grid of minute squares (approximately 50 by 70, just a guesstimate).  I tried to count them but they are way too small. 

As you run your mouse over each square the name of a service member and date of death is shown.  When you click on the square the picture will change to show that individual’s picture and to the right there will be a smaller picture indicating their age, their branch of service and hometown.

If you haven’t seen this or one like it, I think you will find it very interesting.,
