A Salute to the Fallen
A tribute to the 51 men and women with Hawai'i ties killed
in Iraq and Afghanistan
in 2004 and 2003

Twenty-six Kane'ohe Marines, one Pearl Harbor Navy medic and four other U.S. service personnel were killed yesterday when a U.S. helicopter crashed in a desert sandstorm in Iraq.

It was the deadliest day for Americans since the Iraq war began nearly two years ago.
