AP Exclusive: US Ignores Vet Graves in Philippines - ABC News

AP Exclusive: US Ignores Vet Graves in Philippines - ABC News

I was pretty amazed to read this story. While the destruction of cemeteries by Hurricane Katrina was well-documented, it hadn't occurred to me that volcanic eruptions have also caused lasting damage. A very sad story, but nice to know some public spirited people are taking an interest!

Rather sad, but then nothing the US government does, or doesn't do in this case, surprises me any more. A country that doesn't take care of its dead has arrived at a sad level of affairs...
