Anytime there is a casualty, all the flags here fly at half staff. You also get an email reminder of when the remains show up, and when they will leave if you want to go to the ceremony. I haven't been yet because I’ve been to those of soldiers I’ve commanded and for friends. Casualties have been high lately- on both ends. Sometimes I wonder if you can kill ideology out of someone, an organization, or a cause. In due time we will see. But at least once a week, you find out about a man who died to make that change.
