Map the Fallen

Where does technology meet honoring the fallen during what I still call the Long War.

I highly recommend that you go over to Map The Fallen - download the latest versions of GoogleEarth and The Map referenced in the upper-right hand corner.

The detail and context is incredible. The upper right is a screen shot honoring Specialist Norman Lewis Cain III or Oregon Ill who died on 15 MAR 2009 in Kot in Afghanistan (of note - this family also lost his Grandfather Norman Lewis Cain Sr in NOV of last year.)

I want to show you two screen shots - first of North America ---- and then Europe. Note the sacrifice of the UK, The Netherlands, and Denmark. The other's speak for themselves.

Explore, and honor.

Hat tip LGF.
