Itís Time to Bring the Boys Back
Right now only a select few can afford to visit a
relative buried overseas, but if the Boys are
brought home then all can visit their loved ones in
person. All of the dead from Korea forward have been
brought home. Why have we left the Soldiers from WWI
and WWII buried around the world?
There are 140,000 dead buried throughout Europe and
beyond. If we had no problem bringing home almost
100,000 dead from both Korea and Vietnam along with
our current wars (36,000 Korean and 58,000 Vietnam
and 5,000 for the Middle East) why canít we bring up
the WWI & WWII men too?
At the end of WWII, the United States had the
wherewithal to bring all 400,000 home but 125,000
families didnít have the money to bring them home or
in some cases, these was a splint in a family about
this issues. A majority of the issue though was
money. The Government only offered to pay for the
first $75.00. The rest had to be paid for by the
The United States has the money to bring back the
WWI & WWII dead today, so why canít this be done? If
the families didnít either care or want those men
they can be buried in National Cemeteries around the
United States. I think a majority of those would
want to have their loved ones buried in their
hometown. There is plenty of room in the National
Cemeteries for these honored dead.
All of the unknown dead from WWI and WWII could be
buried together in a communal cemetery. Before being
reburied here in the United States DNA could be done
on all of them and when they are identified later
they could be then buried in their home towns where
they grew up.
The ABMC would then not have a reason to exist. That
means $74,000,000 could be saved annually. That
means that they would be out on the street. The ABMC
already dishonors the men buried overseas and only
have their jobs because of patronage.
This would be the old adage, two birds with one
stone. Soldiers brought home and $74,000,000 a year
in savings to boot. This also means that if a
foreign country is overthrown by the anti-American
regime they canít dishonor our buried dead.
What will happen the day a regime takes over a
country that despises America? This came up when
Turkey had an attempted Coup in 2016. When in this
case a Muslim Country takes
Sharia law and it has American dead buried there,
what will happen to them?
If a power like ISS came to power any cemeteries
that arenít their religion would be plowed under and
lost to history. A country like Turkey could
eventually become like that. Then none of the
countries population could visit any Australian,
English etc cemeteries there. Eventually, they might
even be wiped off the face of the earth.
