While doing research for our Memorial Day coverage, we came across a website called mapthefallen.org.
It's amazing - and must've been incredibly time-consuming for its creator, Sean.
Here's his introduction to the site:
This Memorial Day I would like to share with you a personal project of mine that uses Google Earth to honor the more than 5,700 American and Coalition servicemen and women that have lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan. I have created a map for Google Earth that will connect you with each of their storiesâ€”you can see photos, learn about how they died, visit memorial websites with comments from friends and families, and explore the places they called home and where they died.
If you've got some time today, check it out.
