The young wife of the 23-year-old army sergeant said has two small chil­dren and has one on the way. She said for all she knows her hus­band’s remains may not even be in the cof­fin she was forced to bury.
I know my hus­band’s body from head to toe for all I know my hus­bands remains may not even be in that box[nydailynews, com]

Funeral for Sergeant LA David Johnson

The idea of hav­ing to bury a box with­out know­ing exact­ly whats in the box must be heart-rend­ing being forced to deal with doing so while preg­nant and hav­ing to deal with tak­ing care of two small chil­dren is some­thing the rest of us can only try to imag­ine.

We hon­or this fam­i­ly for their sac­ri­fice to a coun­try which still does not see their sac­ri­fice as it does that of oth­ers.
Sleep well sol­dier in Gods’ arms, sleep and take your rest.
