Pentagon to Allow Some Media Coverage of Flag Draped Coffins

According to a 'Breaking' banner report, at the top of the MSNBC News site this is just out from the AP!!

 

I've done a quick search, and boy do I not like the AP site, looking for anything else on this but can't find a thing. Except a few of the recent articles and discussions.

 

I'll look around for some more information and post it.

 

A link came up three minutes, now slightly more, ago:

 

Memorials

Today, as many know or should know, is Veterans Day, or actually many who observe call it what it was intended to be called, Armistice Day.
On this day in a U.S. occupation of anothers country, that seems so long ago but isn't, and which I served '70-'71, the following happened:
November 11, 1972
 

Final Salute

Remember this photo? I'm sure you've seen it a dozen times as it's made it's way around the web. Her name is Katherine Cathey and she's a mother, a mother of a son who never met his father Marine 2nd. Lt. Jim Cathey. Katherine mentions this photo in a video, of which I'll give you the link to in a moment, one you should view.
