A Homage to Caledonia

As many of you know by now, the Pentagon was forced to release some 300 pictures of caskets arriving into Dover AFB, thanks to a lawsuit brought by the Memory Hole. Let me note that this set of pictures don’t depict a normal non-ceremonial arrival of our dead; they’re a photographic record of the training of an Air Force funeral detail.

Having said that, they do serve to show just how dignified the treatment that our honored dead receive. Here’s a link to the entire gallery–a mirror of the Memory Hole site provided by Warblogging.com. It is right and fitting that it be so. As Lincoln said when he dedicated a cemetery during the Civil War, the world will little note what we do here, but it will not forget those who gave the last full measure of devotion.
