Gift of wreaths touches nation
http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2006-12-14-wreaths-cover_x.htm

Peace time fallen Patriots are not well known or referenced, their memory shared only by there family, loved ones and friends, but not by grateful Americans. Now I like reading, and equipped with speed reading abilities, I can run through anything I read pretty fast. I wish I could type as fast.

The following paragraph illustrates one of my summary reports and I was unable to locate any place that discloses our service members lost by name in one hundred percent accuracy so I did not attempt to research an area that could not be verified with the exception of the Coral Sea and between the two giant Coral Sea web sites, all the names of the fallen are not listed on either of there sites.

On 4 March 1989, Nimitz arrived Bremerton, Washington, disembarking CVW-9 operating out of her assigned home base in Calif., at San Diego, Calif., ending her first "Westpac" deployment and second Indian Ocean and Arabian Sea/Gulf (Persian Gulf) operating with the 7th Fleet, operating off the South Korean coast to provide security for the Olympic Games in Seoul in September 1988, followed by operations strengthening the U.S. Naval presence in the crucial Indian Ocean area and the North Arabian Sea where she participated in Operation "Earnest Will, protecting shipping lanes and escorting U.S. registered (re-flagged) Kuwaiti tankers, commencing 29 October 1988, suffering the loss of two sailors, when a 20mm cannon on an A-7 Corsair aircraft accidentally fires during maintenance setting six other aircraft ablaze aboard Nimitz while operating in the Arabian Sea. One sailor is killed when a S-3 aircraft explodes, and another sailor who suffered burns to over 90% of his body later dies after being medically evacuated to Germany, continuing operations Nimitz remained in the North Arabian Sea until relieved; her 11th deployment since she was commissioned.

When I was onboard, I watched an A-6 crash, with both injecting, while the Pilot hit the yardarm suffering the loss of our Patriot. His name not reported that I can find on any government web site, nor are the aforementioned sailors or this sailor:

And there are others:

Fmr. F-14A PC

In August 1992 my Squadron (VF-302 "Fighting Stallions") was on a ten day C.Q. Det. on the USS Nimitz (CVN-68) with the rest of our Carrier Air Group (CVW-30). A day or two out of San Diego there was a death on board. All I remember was being with a few people from the Line Divison sitting on the cat walk beside the flight deck telling jokes and all that sort of thing (our squadron's Tomcats would not land on the Nimitz until the following day). A few minutes later the ship's skipper announced that there had been a mishap and that a Sailor was in bad shape. Later, he annouced that he had died. I was an Airdale in a Tomcat Squadron and he was ship's company, odds are our paths never crossed, but I still wonder "who was he"?

Only thing I know is that this was in August 1992 (maybe late July, not 100% pure) and it took place on the USS Nimitz (CVN-68). If you have any information on who that was, that would be great. I have posted another topic on this event before, but thought it could not hurt to ask.

So what would be wrong with locating every link we can, and maybe we will have a master list, and then if we can't find our fallen Patriot, we can ask I our government to provide the American people their names and I''ll report it for Aircraft Carriers, others will have to do for their own by Command, Unit, etc. It might be interesting to see how things evolve and I'll enjoy reading about our Patriots, many with stories of heroism and great scarf ices, many of which I've read in the last 20-years.

Anyway its challenge, you up to it? I can make posts like this one rather consistently unfortunately from my carrier reports, but the challenge is to first build the master list, which would mean forum members would have to elect someone to manage the master list watching the thread, as I'm not up to the task. Organizing the Index dating as far back as we can, war/conflict/operation/exercise/cq, etc. and then by branches of service, while some will be universal with notes as to what is missing in order to separate branches of the Armed Forces or any other way you all decide to do it, because the master list will evolve as its built.

The naming of the Master list can be decided upon by you and post like I made here come later when we got the facts. Anyway, I've never been able to find one and this project if you decide to take the mission can be done over the period of time and I like Bill O' Reilly so I naturally would like to honor him, but its our fallen Patriots that deserve our praise.

You do realize Bill O'Reilly was over in Vietnam, don't you Batman? He was a journalist who hung with the guys, and did his job, not tell b.s. lies like a lot of others did. He told it like it was. I like him too, I watch his shows, and listen to his radio show quite often too. He's a good man, and a good reporter and journalist. He keeps it pithy. LOL

On 23 October 1983, Beirut, Lebanon, a truck loaded with a bomb crashed into the lobby of the U.S. Marines headquarters in Beirut, killing 241 soldiers and wounding 81. The attack was carried out by Hizballah with the help of Syrian intelligence and financed by Iran.

A remembrance ceremony was held at the Arlington National Cemetery Saturday to remember the Marines who were victimized by a gruesome terrorist attack 21 years ago. On October 23, 1983 at 6:22 a.m., a large delivery truck drove to the Beirut International Airport where the Marine Barracks was located. After turning onto an access road leading to the compound, the driver rushed through a barbed-wire fence, passed between two sentry posts, crashed through the gate, and slammed into the lobby of the barracks. The driver detonated explosives with the power equal to more than 12,000 pounds of TNT. The explosion crumbled the four-story building, crushing service members to death while they were sleeping. The terrorist attack killed 220 Marines and 21 other U.S. service members who were stationed there to help keep the peace in a nation torn by war. It was the bloodiest day in the Corps' history since World War II, when Marines fought to secure Iwo Jima. http://www.arlingtoncemetery.net/terror.htm

Fallen service members remembered on 20th anniversary of Beirut blast on 23 October 2003 - 'Their loss is not in vain'

A wreath-laying proceeded in which a Marine lance corporal, in his dress blue uniform, marched slowly to a memorial stone marking the spot of the site. He placed the wreath alongside the stone and a Lebanese cedar, symbolizing the nation where the Marines died.

"We pledge that we would never forget their memories, their sacrifice," said Marine lance corporal.

From the signing of the Declaration of Principles between Israel and the PLO on September 13, 1993, until September 2000, 256 civilians and soldiers were killed in terrorist attacks in Israel. Another 1,096 Israelis were killed during the Palestinain War between September 2000 and December 2005. (Note: This list also includes four Israelis killed abroad in terror attacks directed specifically against Israeli targets).

Altogether, since September 2000 1,120 Israelis have been killed. Between September 29, 2000, and May 1, 2006, Magen David Adom treated a total of 7,844 casualties as follows: 999 killed, 642 severely injured, 940 moderately and 5,263 lightly injured, among them 11 MDA staff members. (IDF casualties treated by IDF medical personnel are not included in these figures.) Note: This list also includes 18 Israelis killed abroad in terror attacks directed specifically against Israeli targets, and 3 American diplomatic personnel killed in Gaza.

The September 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center figures place the number of dead above 2,976. The number of dead at the Pentagon and on the hijacked airliners numbered approximately 385. Since Yasser Arafat "renounced" violence in the Oslo Peace Accords on September 13, 1993, at least 53 Americans have been murdered and at least another 83 Americans have been injured by Palestinian terrorism. Excluding the September 11 attacks, approximately 700 Americans have been killed and 1,600 wounded in terrorist attacks since 1970. This list also includes injured Americans since Oslo 1993.

As he was talking with pilots overhead and spotting targets for them, a rocket-propelled grenade exploded behind Servais, killing him. Servais was a member of a Special Forces operational detachment that was working with Afghan National Army soldiers and Afghan police. He was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star Medal for Valor on Aug. 25, 2006.

4 U.S. soldiers killed in Afghanistan - 3 troops killed in firefight in eastern Kunar province, another in the south - Aug 19, 2006
KABUL, Afghanistan - Coalition troops clashed with insurgents in two battles Saturday in fighting that left four U.S. and two Afghan soldiers dead and six other Americans wounded, officials said.

The violence came as thousands gathered to mark Afghanistan's independence from British rule in 1919, following the third Anglo-Afghan war.

During a clash against Taliban militants in eastern Kunar province, three U.S. soldiers were killed and three others wounded, said U.S. military spokesman Col. Tom Collins.

American troops in that area are hunting for Taliban fighters and extremists close to Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida network in remote mountains hugging the Pakistani border.

Monsoor was only the second member of force to be killed in Iraq

CORONADO, Calif. - A Navy SEAL sacrificed his life to save his comrades by throwing himself on top of a grenade Iraqi insurgents tossed into their sniper hideout, fellow members of the elite force said.

Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael A. Monsoor had been near the only door to the rooftop structure Sept. 29 when the grenade hit him in the chest and bounced to the floor, said four SEALs who spoke to The Associated Press this week on condition of anonymity because their work requires their identities to remain secret.

�He never took his eye off the grenade, his only movement was down toward it,� said a 28-year-old lieutenant who sustained shrapnel wounds to both legs that day. �He undoubtedly saved mine and the other SEALs� lives, and we owe him.� http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15258312
