    I ve seen what you guys do in Finland,good stuff! What kind of funding do you guys have?
    The funding is via different scientific foundations. On the local level travel and accomodation expences have been covered by the towns in which the work takes place.

    Best, Jan

    What I feel about this..

    Is that "fallen soldiers" deserve their final resting place. They have earned their Rest In Peace.

    No matter where they are "found", no matter where they "lay". We must never forget them.

    They never caused wars, they never deserted, they died.

    The paid ultimate sacrifice, for what? (not in my name).

    Politicians, that's what!

    As I grow older now, and see the futility of war, people like me and you (younger generation) are still dying.

    I hope every one of them is remembered, lovingly missed, by the people who loved them.

    But, above all else, no matter how long it takes, give them their final resting place.

    It's the least we can do.

    It's the least they deserve.

    May they Rest In Peace.

    • Germany: 319

    • Georgia: 1,516
    • Croatia and Slovenia: 349

    • Poland: 4,004
    • Russia: 12,961
    • Slovakia and the Czech Republic: 137
    • Ukraine: 1,095
    • Hungary: 269
    • Total: 24,118

    (i.e. a statistical average of 66 per day)

    30,479 gravemarkers on 42 cemeteries in 11 countries were inscribed.
    36,768 casualty reports (burial, KIA and MIA) were recorded (current total number on record: 5,492,331)
