War Is Personal. Boys play near Section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery, the area designated for those in the military who have lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan. By the end of 2009, over 4,300 men and women from US military forces had been killed and some 30,000 maimed or wounded since the beginning of the conflict in Iraq. The incidence of stress-related illness and military suicides was increasing.
