Army Sends Recruiting Letters To Dead Officers

FOX News: Army Sends Letters to Dead, Wounded Officers Asking Them to Return to Service
WASHINGTON — The Army on Saturday blamed a computer mix-up for recruitment letters mistakenly sent out over the holidays to the families of 275 officers killed or wounded in action in Iraq.
The letters encourage the officers to consider returning to active duty.
"Every Army leader is just sick that this happened," said Gen. Richard Cody, the Army's vice chief of staff. "This is an inexcusable mistake. Five years into this war, the Army can do better than this — and we will."
One can always hope.
