With our military presence in Afghanistan winding down, we tend to forget the casualties continue to mount. In the past 12 months alone, 244 Americans have been killed in support of combat operations in Afghanistan. From Oct. 10, 2001 to May 15, 2013, the total American casualty list is 2,209 killed, and 18,535 wounded in action.The Military Times annual “Faces of the Fallen” Memorial Day tribute is “a final, grateful salute to the 244 Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country over the past 12 months.”
