    REGARDING:
    “sorry ‘remains’ sounds bad.”

    It is consistent with the Christian teaching included in
    Psalm 90:10 “The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.”

    The idea is that we are more than flesh and blood, bone and brain. That that which is really us leaves all that behind. What remains after we are gone to Heaven is NOT us.

    David for Christ

    After the men and woman are through the process in Dover, what ever the families wish is for their loved one will take place where ever the family wished.
    Be it a funeral or cremation the choice of burial place will be at the families discretion.
    Many choose the hometown for a resting place others choose other places of their choosing
    The military administers ultimate respect for our military fallen ones
    God Bless them all

    ” “remains’ going to Dover sorry ‘remains’ sounds bad.I know you don’t like criticism but the headline and this article suck worse than some of your other ones”

    “Remains” is the term always used by the Air Force Mortuary Affairs Operations at Dover AFB. It is the correct term.
