You may remember last January's display in Federal Plaza of about 500 pairs of combat boots, each one representing a soldier killed in Iraq. In the last week, that exhibit has moved to other cities such as Washington DC and Youngstown, Ohio. Regrettably, the exhibit has grown in number to 803 pairs of boots.
