JPAC Admits To Phony Ceremonies Honoring ‘Returning’ Remains

 

 

” The Department of Defense unit charged with recovering servicemembers’ remains abroad has been holding phony “arrival ceremonies” for seven years, with an honor guard carrying flag-draped coffins off of a cargo plane as though they held the remains returning that day from old battlefields.

The Pentagon acknowledged Wednesday that no honored dead were in fact arriving, and that the planes used in the ceremonies often couldn’t even fly, and were towed into position. The story was first reported on nbcnews.com.

The ceremonies at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii are held up as a sign of the nation’s commitment to its fallen warriors. They have been attended by veterans and families of MIAs, led to believe that they were witnessing the return of Americans killed in World War II, Vietnam and Korea.”

  1. Reblogged this on NoOneOfAnyImport and commented:
    These staged arrival ceremonies started seven years ago. Seven. Years. Ago. Who thought this rather sick version of a dog & pony show was a good idea? Unfortunately, it is a good example of how military commands can become just as bloated and out-of-control as the rest of federal government. The most disturbing part the original story: “In July, The Associated Press ran a story exposing a 2012 internal JPAC report that found . . . some missions that amounted to little more than paid vacations for staffers.” Shameful. Also, “Much of the inefficiency found by the GAO researchers comes down to a turf war between JPAC and the Defense Prisoner of War/Missing Personnel Office, which shares some of the same responsibilities, Congressional sources said.” A turf war. Feeling embarrassed the state of those military commands right now.

    PS Sorry I haven’t been around much, folks. Thanks for still coming by. I’ll get back to a regular routine when hub’s deployment is over.
