In response to the treatment of Iraq War veterans by the Bush Administration, Pentagon and VA, I have decided to periodically post pictures from different sources which remind us of the hidden toll of the War in Iraq.
Tristan WyattAGE 21; FRANKTOWN, COLORADO
Machine gunner in the Army's 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment. Lost his leg on August 25, 2003, during a firefight near Fallujah.
Of course his leg was sacrificed, not lost or wasted.
