Read this thoughtful article about how the US buries its war dead, and then remember who’s in the WH. Your heart will sink. He doesn’t give two hoots about US soldiers, alive or dead. They’re a tool he won’t think twice about using against US citizens...seditionists (anyone speaking out against his regime) or ‘religious zealots’ like those 86 followers of David Koresh whom the Clintons and Janet Reno shot dead/burned alive. Plan A involves putting the US military under the control of the UN. Global governance/communism on the march with third world thugs in charge. But that’s okay, Zero is a third world thug.

A first cousin I never knew, an 18-year-old Marine enlistee, was KIA on Okinawa in April, 1945. His remains were returned to the U.S. and buried in a National Cemetery in March, 1949. It took almost four years, but they brought him home to rest.

Get the movie, Gardens of Stone. It features the "Old Guard" the soldiers whose job it is to provide these beautiful, ceremonial services. Lots of cussing, but a strong story, very well done. James Caan, James Earl Jones.
