That is what everyone deserves who puts forth such a sacrifice.

I am glad the military has changed the way our dead are transported.

All the casualties we suffered were escorted by someone from our OWN unit that would make sure everything was done right, however, not ALL units do that because of personel shortages as it is. LTC Kurilla was adament that we take care of our own.

Anybody got the picture of the USMC detail in the baggage compartment of a plane with the passengers faces looking out the window? Id love to have it.

Does anyone have a hi-res of the Marines taking Cathey's body off of the plane?
It's the most moving picture I think I have ever seen.

And with that does anyone have the picture of a Marine walking by graffitti in Iraq that says something like "America isnt at war, the Marine Corps is at war. America's at the mall."

BTW...

I'm sure everybody knew this already, but the reporter that covered the arrival of Cathey's remains wrote a pulitzer prize winning story about it.
