WASHINGTON, D. C. MARCH 14 - American
soldiers who give their lives for their country will be sent home
in full uniform, wrapped in the flag, if the war college adopts
new regulations suggested by Provost Marshal General Crowder.
Crowder testified today before the senate military affairs
committee that he urged this provision be adopted in view of the
sending home from cantonments of the bodies of some soldiers
wrapped only in a winding sheet.
