Megan Garvey reported today that the death of two soldiers in the north of Afghanistan brings the death toll of Californian soldiers serving there and in Iraq has reached 500.

Steve Lopez commented on the number as it grew near several days ago in the same paper.

In an article and a video blog in the same paper, Hector Becerra profiled those soldiers who have been killed since 2001.

Becerra also wrote a piece on the 59 immigrant Californians who have been killed.

Tony Perry wrote a memorial piece for the paper.
