Washington Post Updates Virginia Landfill Report, Says At Least 274 Soldiers’ Bodies Were Discarded

In November, we let you know about a Washington Post report on Virginia’s Dover Air Force Base practice of dumping the incinerated remains of fallen soldiers at a nearby landfill.

Now, the Washington Post is reporting that even more soldiers’ remains have been dumped than initially acknowledged:

“The Air Force dumped the incinerated partial remains of at least 274 American troops in a Virginia landfill, far more than the military had acknowledged, before halting the secretive practice three years ago, records show.”
