The Unknown Military Veteran Civilian Contractor War Casualties

They too are the

BEST KEPT SECRET OF THE WARS

The Majority of ExPat Civilian Contractor Casualties first served their country in the military.  

Many of them gave twenty and more years of service before deploying in a civilian capacity.

Many of them were buried with military honors.

Yet we are not supposed to know their names or even that they died in our wars.

Defense Base Act War Profiteers are encouraged to abuse the families they leave behind

You can see some of these nameless hero’s at

Our Fallen Contractors Memorial

Please keep them and their  families in your thoughts today and everyday

We’ve had the honor of spending time this weekend thinking about each of the fallen contractors whose names we’ve been able to compile on Our Fallen Contractors memorial at American Contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Please keep them in your thoughts as well as the many unnamed and uncounted Contractor Casualties who gave it all.
