Air Force Dumped Remains of at Least 274 Bodies in Virginia Landfill

A disturbing report from the Washington Post has revealed that the Air Force had dumped the “incinerated partial remains” of at least 274 American troops in a Virginia landfill, a figure much higher than the military initially let on, before stopping the practice three years ago. According to the report, 976 fragments from 274 military personnel were cremated, incinerated, and taken to the landfill between 2004 and 2008. There are still another 1,762 fragments that could not be identified.
