BBC News - Dover Air Base dumped 274 US troop remains at landfill
What the HELL? A major US Army mortuary was recently discovered to have been dumping partial remains of soldiers in a local landfill. Is this not the epitome of disrespect?

Cheese and crackers! If has this little respect for its own soldiers, I shutter to think of what they do to the enemy.It emerged that a dead soldier's ankle had been lost and a damaged arm bone was sawed off a dead Marine before burial so he could fit in his uniform and coffin.
Un-freakin-believable.The procedures took place at a time when the mortuary was shielded from public scrutiny because media coverage of fallen troops' return to the air base was banned between 1991-2009
