2,000 And Counting
You should know the name of US Army Staff Sergeant George Alexander Jr.
Why? Because he was the 2,000th American soldier to be killed in the war in Iraq:
The threshold was crossed with the Pentagon’s announcement that Staff Sgt. George Alexander Jr., 34, of Killeen, Tex., had died at Brooke Army Medical Center in Texas on Saturday of injuries suffered in Iraq earlier this month, when a bomb planted by insurgents exploded near his Bradley Fighting Vehicle.
Rest in peace, Sergeant.
