Fallen Soldiers

This week marks the three year anniversary since U.S. troops have invaded Iraq.

In Tallahassee, some residents camped out in front of the Capitol to protest the war. They were stringing pink and red ribbons, each one with a name and rank of a soldier who died in action.

Protesters also read the names of those fallen soldiers.

Lydia Vickers with Code Pink Women for Peace says, "Included, 234 killed in Afghanistan, 2,351 for Iraq. We have also 100 Afghan names and 200 Iraqi civilian names."

Those reading off the soldiers names say it will take hours to get through all of them.
