<<. The Rangers that drew the mission to recover the remains - a task we had not templated but executed when we learned of their location - truly accounted for themselves in an incredible fashion. They dug the remains out often with their hands, as we had few shovels. One man would be digging and when the stench caused them to become sick, they would trade out with the next man. None objected and though many got sick, they worked furiously to get them all out before light. The returning of the remains is a critical task, unsavory as it may be. It is essential for families to have closure for their missing loved ones, and we were able to aid in this.

Congratulations on the success of the rangers, and thanks for your account of the war in Iraq. Thanks for your efforts on behalf of the people of the United States, and Iraq.

Not to nitpick, but I do wonder whether it was worthwhile to risk the safety of our forces in order to recover the remains of those already dead and buried. The area was going to be overrun by coalition forces anyway, after which these honored dead could have been recovered with no risk. So I remain somewhat perplexed at that decision.
