We’ve had the honor of spending time this weekend thinking about each of the fallen contractors whose names we’ve been able to compile on Our Fallen Contractors memorial at American Contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Please keep them in your thoughts as well as the many unnamed and uncounted Contractor Casualties who gave it all.

    The American Embassy did not even bother to send a single representative to my husbands funeral, it was labor day weekend and they obviously had other leisure plans not to be interrupted by something as banal as the death of a covert spy, an American patriot who served his country for over 20 years in both the military and State Dept. There can never be an excuse for this, we found out anyhow despite your best efforts to cover up and only because us foreigners loved one of yours whom you deemed disposable.
    Shame on you forever!
