Reminding us of what's going on "over there"

For the first time in 18 years, the media is once again allowed to record the return of fallen military members as their flag-draped coffin(s) unload from the plane - as long as the family gives the okay.

We, as a nation, are far too detached from the wars we're involved in. I hope this helps remind everyone and make them question what we're doing in Iraq and Afghanistan.

As The Washington Post's Eugene Robinson says in this interview, "We need to know."
