This was an excellent segment and reminded listeners that these are an abstracted group ("troops") but real human beings who demonstrated valor and sacrifice under the conditions of war. Moreover, the soldiers who feel the loss of comrades, and who remember them, are important as they bear witness to civilians of the meaning of sacrifice. Thank you for airing this program.
