WAR IN IRAQ

Iraq: The faces of California’s war dead

The toll can be told partly in who they left be­hind: nearly 300 chil­dren, more than 200 spouses, 35 brides and two grooms who nev­er made it to the al­tar. In cit­ies and towns across the state, me­mori­als can be found for the 483 Cali­for­ni­ans who have died dur­ing the con­flict in Ir­aq. Their faces and stor­ies are re­cor­ded here. — Los Angeles Times  March 2013
