6. I look for the names on the news and in the papers everyday

Having served in Iraq, I want to remember that people are still dying. I want to read the names, see where they are from, what branch of service they're in. Hell, I still have many comrades that are rotating over there. Does anyone still pay attention? Do people just gloss over when they see the small article buried deep and low in the papers with the thumbnail photos that says "in memoriam" or "Service members lost or killed in the line of duty"? Because it seems except for the families, the rest of the country has moved on.
