I had two different posters from two completely different sources ping me to this story, so decided to post it. The story is only part of it. Go to the main Rocky Mountain News page and see the pictures and story that got them the prize.

Congratulations to them for their coverage.
I remember a while ago, someone posted an article of the funeral of an American Indian (Sioux?)from the Marines. That was one of the most moving articles I have ever seen. If anyone still has a link...

Later in the afternoon, Temple again gathered the staff in the newsroom. This time, Beck was joined by Katherine Cathey, whose husband, 2nd Lt. James Cathey, was killed in Iraq in August; by their son, 4- month-old Jimmy Cathey; by Katherine's parents, Vic and Vicki Leonard; and by Cooper.
Katherine Cathey remembered the first night she met Sheeler and Heisler - and that she appreciated them coming to her home "and listening to what I had to say about my husband."
"They made a lot of sacrifices, too, so that everybody would have a very clear picture of what the families had to go through," she said through tears as Jimmy fidgeted in her lap. "These two awards couldn't have been given to anybody other than these two guys."

Great story. Denver is blessed to be a 2-paper town. I miss the RMN. And the Denver comPost is nothing but an amateur version of the NYSlimes.

I'm not getting through to the website now. They are probably being slammed as the news circulates throughout the new media.

Wow, now I'm ruined. Casualty Assistance Calls Officer, toughest MOS in the Marines.
I remember how knotted I was, forcing myself to go home at the end of the day, afraid to see government license plates in my driveway. My son was a squad leader, first battle of Fallujah.
But to think of having to deliver the news, no, I ain't the beginning of that tough.
God Bless 'em. Semper fi, carry on.........
