Faces of Oregon war deadSubmitted by Michael Munk Salem-News.com
Oregonians from 70 towns have been killed in the fighting overseas...
(PORTLAND) - The Sunday Oregonian rightly welcomed an Oregon Army National Guard battalion home from Afghanistan.
But we need also note that, according to the Pentagon, at least 93 military members who claimed home towns in Oregon have died in the Iraq and AfPak wars. The Oregonian counts 111 because its criteria is that a GI need only have "some tie" to Oregon or SW Washington to be counted.
