Via AP: Aug. Death Toll for Reserves in Iraq Soars
WASHINGTON - The National Guard and Reserve suffered more combat deaths in Iraq during the first 10 days of August — at least 32, according to a Pentagon count — than in any full month of the entire war.

What can you do? 1. Go To Crawford [Vets for Peace]
Many of us are heading to Crawford. David Cline, the national President plans to arrive there by the end of the week. Elements of Arlington West are on the road right now. At this time, VFP National is not calling for a mass convergence on Crawford. We do need members to go and act as an advance party to support Cindy and prepare for a mass turnout. But right now we think the best tactical approach is to allow the confrontation between the President and Gold Star Parents For Peace like Cindy, Sue Neiderer, and military families with love ones in Iraq to develop. Too many other people in the mix can distort the story and the opportunity. We are there to lend support. Soon it will be time to bring in the re-enforcements. So in other words if you can’t make it right now, don’t worry, we will need you later. Those who can make it, get there as fast as you can.
Please let us know if you plan to go just to keep us informed of who we have on the ground. You should also visit this link from the Crawford Peace House for more information (lodging etc.).
