Greetings, everyone. As you can see from the archive links listed on the right side of this site, today is The Blog of Death’s second anniversary. Over the past two years, we’ve published more than 1,300 obituaries and 13,000 tributes. Thank you to all of our readers for supporting this Weblog with advertising dollars, donations and obit requests. We love providing this service to you, and plan to continue doing so for many years to come. –Jade Walker

Marking Memorial Day

As of today, 1,836 coalition troops have died in the war in Iraq. That statistic breaks down into 1,656 Americans, 89 Britons, 10 Bulgarians, one Dane, two Dutch, two Estonians, one Hungarian, 21 Italians, one Kazakh, one Latvian, 17 Poles, one Salvadoran, three Slovaks, 11 Spaniards, two Thai and 18 Ukrainians.
The Blog of Death does not have the manpower to cover these losses on a daily basis. However, since this is Memorial Day, we take a moment to honor the sacrifices of all servicemen and women and send comforting thoughts to their families and friends.

The Blog of Death will be on hiatus until May 23rd while I move into my new apartment and get the cable modem installed. After that, the site will return to its daily schedule of obituaries. Feel free to post tributes and e-mail submissions in my absence. Thanks for understanding.
