Air Force Dumped Troops' Remains in Landfill


“The incinerated partial remains of at least 274 American troops were dumped in a Virginia landfill, according to government records, The Washington Post reported on Thursday.”


There’s information missing from this report. Apparently some portion of these veterans’ remains were properly buried. Why weren’t all of the remains given to next of kin for burial? And if there was no next of kin, doesn’t the US military have a procedure for burying its own?
