NJ widow exposes gross mishandling of troop remains

Her quest to find the truth of what happened to her husband’s remains led to an even more disturbing revelation this week as the Air Force acknowledged it had dumped cremated partial remains of at least 274 troops into a Virginia dump – far more than previously acknowledged.

Her story, first told by The Washington Post, along with information from multiple whistleblowers about other mistreatment of fallen soldiers’ bodies became the catalyst for an investigation that found “gross mismanagement” at the Air Force’s mortuary in Dover, Del. – the first stop on American soil for fallen troops coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan.
