Shocking treatment of fallen heroes
In nearly every case, the heroes’ families, which had authorized the military to handle the soldiers’ remains, had no idea that their loved ones’ ashes were unceremoniously trashed, the Post report said. The Air Force came clean about the practice last month after whistleblowers complained about sloppy work at Dover, the main entry for fallen soldiers coming from battlefields overseas.
But it had refused to reveal how many remains went into the landfill, saying that tallying the parts and trying to match them with the more than 6,300 bodies that have passed through Dover would require “massive effort and time,” one Pentagon official said, according to the Post.
While the boston bomber was buried properly ~ our military fallen have final resting places in a much different place.
