Remains of war dead dumped in landfill

• Washington Post

The Dover Air Force Base mortuary for years disposed of some dead troops’ body parts by burning them and dumping the ashes in a Virginia landfill, a practice that officials have since abandoned in favor of burying the remains at sea.

The Dover mortuary, which is the main point of entry for America’s war dead, sent remains to the landfill from 2003 until 2008, according to Air Force officials.

      I suppose everyone involved in this crap is either dead (probably not in a landfill) or can't be contacted. All this does is brings the value of the lives and deaths of our troopers into specific relief:  If you can't defend the freaks who send you to be maimed and killed, you ain't shit!

      The only way a dead soldier can get any real respect is from those with whom (s)he served. Once again, I refer you all to the KMA doctrine - especially politicians and their ilk!
