Your Memorial Day issue was the best coverage of this special day I have ever seen. You showed great respect for the fallen. You honored their sacrifice and their commitment to protecting our freedom. You reminded us to take time to pause to honor all of those who have given their lives so that we may have the liberties that come with living in America.
Thank you for showing the face of each South Carolinian who has died since January 2002 while serving our country in Iraq and Afghanistan. Putting a face on each of the 114 fallen had a much more powerful impact than just reporting the number.
Their families and communities feel these losses profoundly. We will always remember.
