Major General William Troy: Funeral Duty

By Remy Benoit

Day after day, week after week, I try to get across to you that our soldiers, our veterans, are US. They are our sons, daughters, wives, husbands, uncles, aunts, friends.

We are a nation at war, but we are not a nation at war as we once were during WWII. The daily sacrifices, the daily involvement in producing what is needed to win a war effort, does not touch us personally as it did then. But, nevertheless, soldiers die, and those soldiers are part of our National Family. Major General William Troy speaks to that in his essay at the Washington Post Funeral Duty.

Please read of the grief of families, and know that grief is yours too. Stand by your soldiers, support care for Veterans. Demand the best for them—they are giving all for you.
