Red face U.S. Iraq / Afghan War Dead Cremated in "Pet Semetary" Mingling Soldier Animal Ashes

/I don't wanna be buried/
/In no Pet Semetary/
/I don't wanna live my life again/


I hear Stephen King is suing the Military for stealling his idea of buring dead
soldier on cursed land, only to have them resurrected to fight an unholy
everlasting zombie war.



War dead cremated at facility for pets
By Ann Scott Tyson

The Washington Post

WASHINGTON The U.S. military has, since 2001, cremated some of the
remains of U.S. service members killed in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere in a
Delaware facility that also cremates pets, a practice that ended Friday when
the Pentagon banned the arrangement.

The facility, in an industrial park near Dover Air Force Base, has cremated
about 200 service members, manager David Bose said Friday night. It uses
separate crematories a few feet apart to cremate humans and animals, he
added.

Pentagon officials said they do not think any humans were cremated in the
pet crematory. "We have absolutely no evidence whatsoever at this point
that any human remains were at all ever mistreated," Pentagon press
secretary Geoff Morrell said late Friday.

Despite Bose's estimate, officials said they do not know the number of service
members cremated at the Kent County facility, identified on a billboard as
Friends Forever Pet Cremation Service
.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates found "the site and signage insensitive and
entirely inappropriate for the dignified treatment of our fallen," Morrell
said. "The families of the fallen have the secretary's deepest apology," he said.

The revelation came to light when an Army officer who works at the Pentagon
traveled to Delaware on Thursday to attend the cremation of a military
comrade.

Offended to discover that the facility was labeled as a pet crematory, the
officer sent an e-mail late Thursday to superiors at the Pentagon that
included a photograph of the signage.

It soon rocketed to the attention of Gates, who directed David Chu,
undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness, to conduct "a
comprehensive review of existing DOD policies and practices governing the
cremation and handling of remains of U.S. service members," Morrell said.

He was adamant that there had "not been any people gone through the pet crematory."

The Air Force has no crematory facility at Dover Air Force Base, where the
Dover port mortuary handles the remains of all U.S. service members who die
overseas.

I can't quite figure out why you'd smiley wink at something like this, careful what you smile and wink about someone might snatch that eye out.

Who gives a shit about the purpose of a crematorium?

It's all about the functions.

Who gives a shit about ash anyways? It's all a bunch of carbon.

Proffesor Murder is blatantly a douchebag for putting far misleading titles into his threads.

Not really seeing the issue here, a body is a body, it's gone on. Does it really matter where it gets cremated? The rituals associated with death are among the most arcane on this planet, we treat death with such reverence because we don't understand it.

Seems like a trite problem to me.

What's misleasing?

Facts:

Soldiers Cremated in pet cemetary; Ashes had Mingled.

If the Military tells you there was never any mistreatment of the ashes.

Oh, boy?

Thanks for checking out my thread though...

i think your use of the word "mingle" is misleading, because the article does not seem to include any form of that word. it only says "separate crematories a few feet apart" which is not the same as mixing ashes. but your title seems to say ashes were mixed

Ashes float.

They eventually mingle.

Especially in the same room, a few feet apart.

It's only logical that they would mingle, if it were ever so small, still.

Pretty much my feeling as well, once I'm dead, I don't really care.

I'd probably donate my body to science anyway.
