A diner near the Ft. Lewis Army Post in Washington State has created an impromptu memorial to American servicemen and servicewomen who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan. Galloping Gerties Bar and Grill, owned by a self-proclaimed pacifist, began listing the number of U.S. casualties on a board in the parking lot this past year.
