Please read, and pass around
I've never stuck around after a funeral long enough to see a casket being 'lowered' into the ground. One who loses a loved one can only assume and hope that this deceased person will be treated with the utmost care and respect but in this case, that isn't so.
I opened this column thinking that it would be about another dead child or something else but to my surprise, it wasn't. This is about a soldier who lost his life in Iraq and the aftermath of his funeral.
Sad? Most definately. Done on purpose? Probably not. Could this have been rectified by Arlington? Oh, hell yeah.
Read this article and pass it around. This is really sad and makes me wonder just how often those loved ones are left in this condition.
