About Faces of the Fallen

Faces of the Fallen is a collection of information about each U.S. service member who has died as a result of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, in Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation New Dawn and Operation Enduring Freedom.

This information is updated at least weekly from military releases, news service reports and local newspaper stories. The photographs come from news services, local newspapers and family members. The Washington Post cannot give permission to allow for third-party use of the photos in Faces of the Fallen due to contractual agreements with other news organizations.

Application design and development by Sisi Wei, Jeremy Bowers and Wilson Andrews.
