Here is a list of military personnel from Route 66 towns who have died in Afghanistan and Iraq. I’ve also added informative links to each of the fallen, wherever possible.

Thank you for doing this, Ron. It’s important that we not forget these people who have died for the cause of our freedom and safety. God bless their families, and all those who are still there, and bring them home safe and soon.
