The fifth and final installment of US Marine Brian Taylorís war journal is now online. Links to earlier installments of this fascinating and emotional series are included. Also, Brianís brother Greg writes:

A reader of Brian's war journal has established a fund for the education of the children of Brian's friend Staff Sergeant James Cawley, killed near Al Jaraf, Iraq, on March 29, 2003. Cecil was 8 and Keiko was 6 when their dad was killed. You can send checks to that fund here:

Cawley Children Memorial Fund
America First Credit Union
P.O. Box 9199
Ogden, UT 84409

If anyone would prefer to donate immediately via PayPal, simply hit the Paypal button at left and mention in your note that it is for the Cawley children. Iíll forward all donations to the fund address in Utah.

I'm embarrassed that I hadn't seen this earlier, and I live here in Utah.

Thanks for this Tim. I linked to it on Chief Wiggles site.
