Documenting the return of U.S. war dead – The Big Picture – Boston.com.

Intense images.  One understands why the government did not want this published. One thing I thought of is how this is such a display of the strength and the wealth of our nation. Is there any other civilization before ours that had the luxury to fly home their honored dead from around the world – and so quickly, these men were alive only a week ago.

Of course, all respect for these men who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country. #15 reminds us how young so many of these guys are — I’m just about to turn 30 and it hurts me that I may well have already had a good 10 extra years of living.
