ARLINGTON WEST SANTA MONICA.

Every Sunday from sunrise to sunset, a temporary memorial is created on the beaches of Southern California. Located just north of the world famous pier at Santa Monica, California and at the Sterns Wharf in Santa Barbara, the Arlington West Memorial, a project of Veterans For Peace, offers visitors a graceful, visually and emotionally powerful place for reflection.

As the numbers of military personnel lost and wounded are acknowledged, a sign nearby begs attention to the number of Iraqis killed. Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health, published a survey in The Lancet Medical Journal in October of 2006. This survey, known as the "Iraqi Mortality Survey," showed statistically that since the U.S. invasion of March 2003, the number of Iraqi deaths exceeded 655,000. By September 2007, a prestigious British polling firm revised this number to over 1 million Iraqi deaths since the US invasion and occupation of March 2003.
