As the United States continues to operate two different military operations in both Iraq and Afghanistan, a number of magazines and newspapers have created thoughtful and interesting sites dedicated to the men and women who have given their lives for such efforts. One very compelling site is "Faces of the Fallen", developed by staff members at The Washington Post. Utilizing information from various news services, military releases, and family members, they have created this photographic database of the servicepersons who have died in these conflicts. Visitors can browse through the database as they see fit, or also view service members by age, year of death, home state, or military branch. The site also contains a section titled "In their Own Words", which contains some video clips of veterans talking about their experiences, along with links recent news stories on these men and women that appeared in the Post.
