Thanks for including the section in your paper (Nov. 2, 2005) honoring those slain in Iraq. In order to more fully recognize their sacrifices, I was wondering if it would be possible to also include an accompanying section chronicling the milestones their efforts have achieved (e.g., national elections, the passing of a constitution, recent willingness of Sunnis to engage in the political process, etc.)? By including such a section, I believe your paper will further its cause of appropriately honoring our country’s dear losses.

As a related aside, it would be valuable if you could also include a similar section dealing with the ongoing efforts in Afghanistan. I suspect it is simply an oversight as to why your paper would choose to honor the effort in Iraq without paying appropriate homage to our losses in Afghanistan as well.
