So many coming home dead from Iraq that they can't keep up with the funerals

Fort Lewis rethinks end of individual memorials | | Tacoma, WA: "Many said soldiers who make the ultimate sacrifice deserve a more personal tribute. But Troy said in a memo that with thousands of local soldiers now in hostile action, “our losses will preclude us from continuing to do individual memorial ceremonies.”"

Once you get past the MilSpeak what that guy is saying is that they have so many troops deployed that they don't have enough people to even handle the funerals. Troop numbers are that low.

But certain people seem to think that we have enough troops to start another war with Iran. Hooray, we're all gonna die!

This war's gonna last at least another 20 years. That's what it's come to.
