Subject: OPEN LETTER to my State Senators: military remains dumped in Landfill!


This has been confirmed and is the most dispicable uncaring action by government ever! Worse -- it somehow involves the United States Air Force or civilian designees.

I have sent the following email to my California State Seantors (Boxer and Feinstein). I urge you to email your own State Senators. You can find their email addresses at: http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm

Just click on your STATE and their names/emails will appear.

Dear Senator,

First, thank you so much for your years of great service to California. You can count on my support, as always.

Briefly, I would like to express my outrage concerning how the United States Air Force has disposed of the remains of approximately 200 veterans: by 'dumping' the veterans' ashes in a landfill. I had hoped the rumors circulating were untrue, but now appears this despicable act is true, and worse, as the USAF and responsible departments will not take steps to investigate the circumstances, hold accountable the responsible parties, nor take immediate corrective action to recover and properly bury these veterans. These vulgar, disrespectful, and sacrilegious actions by the USAF is absolutely outrageous and unacceptable.

I know that you have been a strong advocate for veteran issues, and I am requesting that your office please call for an investigation and require the USAF to take corrective steps to set-right this horrible treatment for the remains of men and women who served our country and hold accountable responsible parties, regardless of the time and expense necessary. To think men and women now in active service defending our nation might feel we as a nation hold their service, and those who fall in combat or line of duty, in such contempt, as to dispose of their remains in a landfill, is so loathing and hideous a concept, as to be intolerable.


Don Poss,
Hemet, CA
