They may be fragments to you, but they are still remains of military men and women that deserve to be honored with a decent burial.
Burial at sea might have been a good option - seeing as Dover AFB [where the USAF mortuary is located] is VERY close to the shore.
Each set of cremated remains should have been stored in an urn and then say once a month a commitment at sea with a military chaplain could be performed.
BUT NOOOOO !!! They just tossed them in the landfill like yesterday's shoes ...
Even an old gallon sized mayo jar from the mess hall would have been more dignified than this. Good grief!
What do you do when a person loses a limb, or has something surgically removed, save it ?
Fragments, mostly unidentifiable. Prioritize. This is a dristraction of the Washington Post.
