Georgians Observe Moment of Silence

The entire State of Georgia will pause for a moment of silence at 1pm. Governor Sonny Perdue called for the vigil two weeks ago after the Georgia National Guard's 48th Brigade lost 12 members in ten days.

Since he called for the vigil, four more Guardsmen have been killed. Sixteen soldiers have died since deploying to Iraq in June. Another soldier was killed in Kuwait.

Members of the 48th Brigade will take part in the observance in Iraq at roughly the same time.
