I would like there to be fewer dead American soldiers to remember on future Memorial Days:
March 2003 267
March 2004 375
March 2005 407
March 2006 520
This is not exactly the sort of progression that was seen three months into the German, Japanese or Korean Occupations, let alone three years, even if the moving average has been declining after less bloody months like February (86 casualties).
I miss you, Gamp. I know you’re guarding those streets with a smile on your face, keeping out the riff-raff.
