War Memorial Puts You in Their Boots

A travelling war memorial in Amarillo compels visitors to see themselves in someone else's boots.  Namely, those of fallen National Guard soldiers from the Iraq War.

More than 400 pairs of empty combat boots lined Centennial Plaza today, each tagged with names of guardsmen killed in Iraq.

The exhibition is called "Eyes Wide Open."  The American Friends Service Committee is bringing it across the country to demonstrate the human cost of war.

More than 3,200 United States military personnel have died since the war began.
