The night before the burial of her husband 2nd Lt. James Cathey of the United States Marine Corps, killed in Iraq, Katherine Cathey refused to leave the casket, asking to sleep next to his body for the last time. The Marines made a bed for her, tucking in the sheets below the flag. Before she fell asleep, she opened her laptop computer and played songs that reminded her of him, and one of the Marines asked if she wanted them to continue standing watch as she slept. “I think it would be kind of nice if you kept doing it” she said. “I think that’s what he would have wanted”.
-Not sure what is more honorable: Being married to this faithful wife to the end or the Marine standing next to the casket watching over them both.

Never forget those who were lost. To all those in uniform, thank you.
This will never not be reblogged from me.
I saw this in the Pulitizer Prizer Winner collection at the Newseum. Another photo from this series won the actual prize but I just sat and stared at this one and cried and cried.
As much as I respect the soldiers and families of those soldiers who serve and who died during service, I feel as though we spend too much time romanticizing the grief of the families’ who lose their loved ones. I feel as though a better way to remember those who were lost is to acknowledge the life they lived, how they lived, and the love they gave others, and not by exposing the pain of those they left behind.
