Imagine this- as the mother of an active duty military member and his active duty wife- this is something I have imagined on more than one occasion- can you see the pain? Can you imagine???
Then, if you can, imagine the horror every parent of every soldier felt on hearing this-
Army investigators at Arlington National Cemetery have found more than 100 unmarked graves, scores of grave sites with headstones that are not recorded on cemetery maps, and at least four burial urns that had been unearthed and dumped in an area where excess grave dirt is kept.
The investigators found that these and other blunders were the result of a “dysfunctional” and chaotic management system at the cemetery, which was poisoned by bitterness among top supervisors and hobbled by antiquated record-keeping.
I am weeping as I type this- for the fallen and their families and for our country that has become so callous that a “dysfunctional management system” has caused so much distress to families who have given their all.
On behalf of my country I apologize to those families. Nothing can replace your loved ones and I, for one, appreciate your sacrifice. No words of mine can erase the horror you are going through, but perhaps you will feel some comfort knowing that this proud military mom is praying for you and yours. God Bless You and thank you!
I just got this link from mcnorman- and i truly hope there is a special HELL for the assholes that cause this kind of pain for military families. Everlasting fire just is not punishment enough.
Father Driven To Pick Through His Son’s Remains (Just imagine the horror)
You absolutely MUST go and read what the officials at Arlington do to our fallen hero’s families.
A special hell- just for those who disrespect our troops and their families. May God DAMN them to eternal hell.
