Sign of the times?

Fort Lewis to consolidate memorials for dead

Michael Gilbert

Fort Lewis, which this month has suffered its worst losses of the war, will no longer conduct individual memorial ceremonies for soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Instead, the post will hold one ceremony for all soldiers killed each month, the Fort Lewis acting commanding general, Brig. Gen. William Troy, wrote in a memo to commanders and staff last week.

Fort Lewis isn't the first to go this route. Wouldn't you imagine at some point someone would DO SOMETHING about this?

I know, I know...
