“As much as we would like to think otherwise, I am afraid that with the number of soldiers we now have in harm’s way, our losses will preclude us from continuing to do individual memorial ceremonies.”

–Brig. Gen. William Troy, former interim commander at Fort Lewis, Wash., in a May e-mail message announcing that the base would shift from holding separate memorial services for each soldier killed in action after deploying from the base to holding combined services once a month. That policy has been delayed after soldiers’ families and veterans protested it, the New York Times reports.”
