Honoring the war dead

By Libby

I'm late in signing on to this appeal at Comments from Left Field, but since they've expanded the fundraiser it's not too late to participate.

It all started with a post on Sgt. Yance T. Gray, and Sgt. Omar Mora, who were killed in a non combat related vehicle accident on September 10th in western Baghdad. Gray and Mora, as you may remember were two of the active duty soldiers who wrote the op-ed in the NYT that was critical of the occupation. After Gray's father-in-law commented at the post, Kyle decided to host a fundraiser in their honor.

After exploring several options, we have decided to donate 100% of the funds to the Fisher House charity, an organization we have worked with in the past. Fisher House has a simple goal; to build houses near military medical facilities. Here loved ones of those who have been injured in the line of duty can stay free of charge while their service member undergoes necessary treatment.

If you have a blog, please help them reach their new goal by linking to their giving page. Even if you don't have a blog, please help spread the word and of course, if you can spare the bucks, please donate.
