Sid Busch will run the Baltimore Marathon with a fallen Marine on his back. It's a weight he is proud to carry. On Saturday, Busch, 66, will pin a photo of Jimmy Malachowski to his shirt, look skyward and murmur something to the leatherneck from Westminster, who was killed in Afghanistan last year. Then, as he has done 40 times before, Busch will race the 26.2 miles through city streets in memory of a serviceman he never met. Some six hours later, when he's done, Busch will hand his finishing medal to Malachowski's parents.

Dale I. Beatty vividly remembers his first glimpse of a Fisher House, a home away from home for wounded troops and their families. The former North Carolina Army National Guard staff sergeant had lost both legs in an explosion in Iraq in 2004 and was a patient at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington. His wife and two young sons moved to a Fisher House nearby. "I rolled in on my first day off pain meds," he said. "I was sick and in a wheelchair. But right away I thought, 'This place is awesome.' I just wanted to sit on the couch.

The casket tilted slightly, suggesting that the weight of their task was almost too much for the men in white gloves and dress blues. Walking slowly behind Army Staff Sgt. Christopher W. Swanson's flag-draped coffin, his father, Gary, pumped his fist, as if he were bracing himself. He, his wife, Kelly, and their son, Kenneth, clutched tissues and each other. They and about 300 others gathered yesterday at First Baptist Church of Upper Marlboro to praise and remember Sergeant Swanson, 25, a decorated soldier from southern Anne Arundel County.

The Iraq journal of Staff Sgt. Ivan L. "Chip" Frederick II, penned in careful handwriting and mailed home as he feared becoming a scapegoat for egregious military misdeeds, paints a nightmarish picture of overworked, undertrained guards coping with hostile Iraqi prisoners and using tactics that flagrantly violated international rules for treatment of detainees. If true, the 37-year-old reservist's statements are a devastating indictment of a U.S. military that toppled a brutal dictator only to be accused of torturing Iraqis in a prison, Abu Ghraib, notorious for similar and worse horrors during Saddam Hussein's rule.
