Dead Soldiers return home with the luggage....

Dead heroes are supposed to come home with their coffins draped with the American flag -- greeted by a color guard.

But in reality, many are arriving as freight on commercial airliners -- stuffed in the belly of a plane with suitcases and other cargo. John Holley and his wife, Stacey, were stunned when they found out the body of their only child, Matthew, who died in last month, would be arriving at Lindbergh Field as freight.

.....

John and Stacey Holley, who were both in the Army, made some calls, and with the help of U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer, Matthew was greeted with honor and respect.

"Our familiarity with military protocol and things of that sort allowed us to kind of put our foot down -- we're not sure other parents have that same knowledge," said Stacey Holley.

.....

Reporters from 10News called the Defense Department for an explanation. A representative said she did not know why this is happening.

Good thing we have Patriotic, compassionate, conservatives running this war. Shitbags. By the way, the Manchester VA will be closing Christmas day from noon to 0800 the day after Christmas. Nice for all the homeless vets and those that are not going to have anywhere to get emergentcy or PTSD care for the holiday. The VA has their records for these special, intricate cases. Yeah, all about the troops and the vet my ass.
