Social networking website Facebook launched an application Monday to honor the more than 2 million Americans who died during military service.

The list of military personnel stretches from the Revolutionary War to today's wars. The goal is to get as many members as possible to update their status with a message that honors a soldier.

Facebook has more than 400 million active members.
