The men and women who served our nation or
our communities are recognized on these pages. We honor the
living for their dedication and courage. For some who gave their
all we borrow the words etched in stone from the National Law
Enforcement Memorial in our Nation's Capitol:
"It is not how
the died that made them heroes...
It is how they lived!"
At PDN, we encourage our website's
visitors to share their loved one's stories as well. Arrangements have
been made for these pages to be preserved for our future generation.
From time to time, this page will feature
exceptional stories even though anyone whose name you see on the left
were exceptional in their own ways. It is a duty we take great pride in
sharing with our website's visitors.
CJ wrote some years ago:
Two journalists were killed and one severely
injured by an IED in Iraq. Every media outlet in the country seemed to trip all
over themselves trying to tell the American people about these "brave
journalists". There were specials aired during prime time, full front page
articles on almost every national newspaper and most local papers. And in every
single article was this vague and nonspecific notation:"A U.S. soldier and an
Iraqi translator also died in the blast."
