Professor Michael Minch at Utah Valley State College says reading the names of casualties in Iraq — some 7,000 U.S. and Iraqi — is a memorial to "recall the cost of war and the scale of death" (April 11).
In my war, the Korean War — the forgotten war — some 40,000 were killed in action in a year and a half of fighting.
Makes the Iraq war look pretty puny, almost peaceful.
