Picture of the Week

You may think you've seen this scene a hundred times, but it was either archived footage or a movie because showing the return of the war-dead was forbidden by President H.W. Bush and was overturned recently. Now, with the family's consent, we will be allowed to see these images. This was the first in 18 years. We need to see this stuff. The cost of war...

(Members of the U.S. Army carry a flag-draped transfer case holding the remains of a U.S. soldier at Dover Air Force Base in Dover, Delaware. This photograph was made under a new policy that overturns an 18-year ban on news coverage of the remains of fallen U.S. service personnel.)
