On April 2, 1982, the Argentine dictatorship (the selfappointed?Process of National Reorganization,?) decided torecover the Malvinas Islands for the country. This led to a warbetween Argentina and Great Britain that ended on June 14thof the same year with the defeat of the Argentine armed forces,leaving a death toll of 649 Argentine soldiers. In this work I will examine how the family members of the group "Familiares de Caídos en la Guerra de Malvinas e Islas del Atlántico Sur" attribute meaning to their losses within an interpretative framework in which the Virgen de Luján appears as their main identity symbol.
