Since 2001, the remains of 6,300 troops have passed through Dover Air Base, the main point of entry for US war dead. The Washington Post reports that the US Air Force dumped the cremated, partial remains of at least an additional 274 troops in a landfill, in addition to a group of 1,762 remains they'd reported on earlier. The total troops remains that were dumped in a landfill were 2,036 out of the 6,300 processed through Dover Air Base. In other words, 30% of those troops were Disposable Heroes.
Isn't it about time our society starts to hold people accountable for their actions?
