Spread the Word

H/T to William the Coroner.

For two weeks, no one has, despite Hannah’s years of service in the Navy, despite an honorable discharge, despite calls and a letter to the U.S. Military Retirement Pay Division. Bureaucracy and privacy concerns (ironic for a man whom no one has claimed) bog down the process.

Pass this down the chain.  Someone knows this man, and he deserves better.

WTC has an update. They found his brother brother and are working on arranging a proper burial at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center.

Dammit - all this dust is killin' me.

Yup. The pollen has been especially bad lately. Ahem.

WV: bitter

A clinger, too.

That's good Nancy. We had a similar story here in Louisville a while back, and eventually one of the local VFW posts adopted the vet and made sure he got a decent burial at the cemetery near Fort Knox.
