Military cluelessness in the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel 
Among those preparing to leave are some members of the 124th Infantry Division, which served in Iraq in late 2002. At that time, the National Guard called up more then 1,500 troops, said Senior Airman Thomas Kielbasa, a National Guard spokesman in St. Augustine.


Ummm, it's a local story. It's in your own damn community. We were in Iraq for a year and didn't see one lousy reporter from our hometown newspapers. But you'd think the Sun Sentinel would have figured out by now that their local hometown National Guard unit, the 124th Infantry, is a REGIMENT, not a division.

If not, it wouldn't hurt to pick up the phone. Any veteran would have paid attention and got that right, and saved the paper from an embarassing error on its front page lead story today, above the fold.

(Full disclosure: The Sun Sentinel passed on my several job applications, too, in 2002 and 2004.)

Editors, how many veterans do you have in your newsroom?

Hey, excellent website. A great Iraq resource is Deaths in Iraq. It breaks all of the casualties down by age, race, branch of the military, country, etc.
I am looking for information on the history of flags. I need some ideas for my new site. Thanks for the post.
