Lest We Forget: Two U.S. Soldiers Still Missing in Iraq

USA Today has a front page story today about two U.S. soldiers still missing in Iraq after an attack in May.

The story is a reminder that the war goes on, even as we distract ourselves with the PGA in town, the Barry Bonds homerun saga, and the like.

Unfortunately, USA Today notes, the search for Spc. Alex Jimenez and Pvt. Byron Fouty grows "colder by the day." Yet their platoon continues the search, hoping against hope that the soldiers will be rescued.

The outlook is grim. But we applaud USA Today for keeping these young men in the news. They should not be forgotten.
