Four Security Guards Killed in Iraq

And the war, it keeps on taking...

Four security professionals, Ronald Hyatt, Robert McCoy, Robert Pole and Ryan Young, serving in Iraq with Triple Canopy were killed on Wednesday while conducting a protective security operation for the U.S. Department of State in Basra.

"It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our colleagues," said Ignacio "Iggy" Balderas, CEO of Triple Canopy. "They were an elite corps of highly skilled security professionals who died in continued service to their country. Our thoughts, prayers and support go out to their families."

They weren't soldiers, so they probably won't appear on any Defense Department list. But, one still has to ask, as Neil Young did years ago in "Ohio", how many more?
