Remember the sacrifices by U.S. soldiers whose lives were lost in Afghanistan between Aug. 16 and Sept. 5, 2014.

Remember their families and the families of all soldiers lost, as well as those injured in Iraq and Afghanistan who need our help. Remember, too, the civilians lost in violence in conflicts around the world.
