Mike Dunford points me to an organization that supports families who've lost loved ones in the Iraq War. From Mike:

As I mentioned recently, a number of soldiers in Iraq will be running the Honolulu Marathon this weekend. The course goes around a base several times, mostly over dirt roads. In part, running the Honolulu Marathon lets folks maintain a connection with home, but that's not the only reason that they are running. They're also running to support TAPS - an organization that provides support to the families of people who die while on active duty in the armed forces.

You can see the casualty counts yourself, nothing to sniff at.
