Dover Air Base is the point in which most of the KIA'S (Killed In Action) Soldiers are returned to the U.S.A. after being killed while fighting for their Country,today I read a story that has gotten me so angry that I cannot think of enough derogatory words to express how I feel as I write this article.
The Mortuary there has dumped cremated remains and body parts of our fighting men into a landfill,they were treated as mere rubish!Somthing to be thrown away,this is not only an insult to all those brave men who gave every thing for this country,but it is a NATIONAL DISGRACE! and from what I read only an Air Force Colonel and two Civilians were desciplined,not kicked out of the military or fired,just "desciplined"! which could mean anything from an article 15 to a Butt Chewing!this is not enough,this too is an insult! they ,the "Colonel" should be courts martialed and drummed out of the military and the civilians should be sent to fort levenworth!
