Thanks Saheli for pointing out to the Photo essay at Time. The photos at Time have been taken from a bigger story Rocky Mountain News has been following for the past year. It's presentation titled Final Salute. There is a audio show that narrates the story behind the pictures, but watch the pictures separately as well. The backdrop is 2nd Lt. Jim Cathey's casket being unloaded from an airplane with passengers of the plane watching.
We need more such stories.
The essential thing is that people should carefully weight the price they must pay....
