Letters to the Names of the Dead

From July 24, 2006 to July 24, 2007, I wrote a letter to every person in The United States Military who had been announced as a casualty of The War in Iraq. The letters are handwritten and addressed to individuals on the day their death is announced by the Department of Defense. On February 9, 2008, I concluded the project with an un-mailing of 100 letters in blank envelopes at a post office box, in Oakland, CA.
