Worth a read:
In the Miami Herald today, Leonard Pitts on 1963: True Beginning of the '60s; and Carol Rosenberg on How the dead come home from Iraq at Dover AFB.
"Mortuary workers recall only one day since the Iraqi campaign began in March when an American's remains were not in the funeral parlor or the morgue.
...The building also serves a more traditional funeral parlor function, free of charge. Bodies are dressed and placed in coffins -- steel or wood, the relatives' choice."

It's the story about the war you don't hear often.
