CONTROVERSY BREWS OVER TRANSPORTATION OF MARINES KILLED OVERSEAS

I don't know what bureaucratic moron authorized this bit of stupidity, but he or she needs to be flogged in the public square, crated up, and shipped home...the slowest way possible. From 10News.com:
There's controversy over how the military is transporting the bodies of service members killed overseas, 10News reported.A local family said fallen soldiers and Marines deserve better and that one would think our war heroes are being transported with dignity, care and respect. It said one would think upon arrival in their hometowns they are greeted with honor. But unfortunately, the family said that is just not the case.Dead heroes are supposed to come home with their coffins draped with the American flag -- greeted by a color guard.But in reality, many are arriving as freight on commercial airliners -- stuffed in the belly of a plane with suitcases and other cargo.
Watch video of the controversy here. This mistreatment of our honored dead is unacceptable and must be corrected immediately.
