274 American Soldiers remains were dumped in landfill in Virginia State. Just heard this on my local news, but it seems to be old news.Thought this was hardcore though, so I wanted to spread the word. America is officially ran by communist.
Our country is So BROKE "15 TRILLION to be exact", that the government can't afford to bury our soldiers at sea.

Can you provide proof of this? A source or photos?

The dumping was kept from families, and there are no plans to notify them now, Air Force officials told the Post.


That is simply a disgrace....sorry for a oneliner, but I have no more words for this action.

"An additional group of 1,762 unidentified remains from the battlefield — which could not be tested for DNA because they were too damaged"

there is another thread on this... sorry i dont have time to link it right now but search for 274 and you will find it. Also the last time I heard about this it was kind of an old story and it wasn't whole bodies being dumped its pieces that they either could not identify or where just to lazy to do it. there is a federal investigation into it I believe.

Either way as a disabled veteran I am disgusted.

[color=dodgerblue]I was just discussing this with my sister in law whose husband is in the Air Force.

It's just disgusting...

Good Job, America.

They could be at least a little respectful of those that lost their lives serving our country. They could at least give the remains a proper burial and mark it as unknown with a plaque stating the situation. Our soldiers deserve better than this treatment.

The Air Force dumped the incinerated partial remains of at least 274 American troops in a Virginia landfill, far more than the military had acknowledged, before halting the secretive practice three years ago, records show.

The landfill dumping was concealed from families who had authorized the military to dispose of the remains in a dignified and respectful manner, Air Force officials said. There are no plans, they said, to alert those families now.
.....[snip].....

An additional group of 1,762 unidentified remains were collected from the battlefield and disposed of in the same manner, the Air Force said.

So as much as people complain about the government and the military wasting money you want them to spend more money to make sure the right piece of random flesh makes it into the right box?

Its not that big of a deal most piece where incinerated which is what has been done with unidentifiable body parts since WW2 or placed in a unmarked grave. Yeah they should have been less shady and tell the families what was going on but it the US Gov what do you really expect? Upfront Honesty?

I typically wouldn't go that far but it's plausible...my father was over in Iraq as a contractor with KBR/Halliburton and got 3 lung conditions from the burn pits and many of our soldiers and citizens/contractors exposed to these burn pits are coming back and dying within as little as a month to a year...my father has 3-5 years left in his life and is in the Class Action Lawsuit against them after winning $500,000 from them in a settlement. They are burning the materials constantly...on top of that we are spending $2 billion a WEEK on this war... and yet we still have advocates of the war in the 99% ignorance at its best! not to mention we have people like Westboro Baptist Church coming out of the wood works and protesting burials for soldiers who have died. I say this is all outrageous and absurd. I respect these men too much to let this continue on

Now it even makes more sense as to why the Bush administration made it illegal to film or report on dead military members coming home. Maybe .. ya, maybe... they thought it would be bad publicity to see them coming home and dumped in ... well, dumps.
