Event to Honor Missouri Soldiers Killed in Iraq

March 19, 2006 - Posted at 12:57 p.m. CST

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) _ Missouri soldiers killed in Iraq will be

remembered in a unique event next weekend in St. Joseph.

The so-called ``Walk to Remember'' to be held Saturday is a

five-kilometer walk along a road lined with photos and biographical

information about troops from the state killed since the war began

three years ago.

Money raised through the event will go to pay for bronze markers

to be placed on soldiers' graves.

Many across the country are marking the third anniversary of the

Iraq war, but in different ways.

Thousands turned out for anti-war rallies yesterday in Madison,

Wisconsin; Concord, New Hampshire; Times Square in New York; Boston

and Los Angeles.
