Why would the family request military honors for him when he did not serve in the military?

A slap in the face to real veteans. Typical of bozo and company. Boeing factory workers were "nessesary" but they were NOT MEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES. This sucks!

There is no doubt that this man was part of the 'Greatest Generation' that gave their all, be it on the home front or the war front, to keep our country free. However, I can't go along with giving military honors to someone that did not serve in the military. To do so is a slap in the face to those that did serve.

Such actions, as described in this story, are an afront to all who actually served in our military.
During WWII, as a youngster, I helped to collect tin, grease, scap iron, etc. for the "War Cause". By these standards, I should have a grave marker for my duty to my country. Nonsense. Having served in the U.S. Army for 3 years I can tell you that I am disgusted with people trying to claim military honors for which they are clearly not quallified.

The Best Question is why would the Government Allow such an action, and are constantly refusing "AGENT ORANGE CONTAMINATION" Claims of Genuine Vetrans of the Viet Nam War.....It is "Change" we don't need, this kind of MONKEY BIZ...

He as well as all who put forth a call to duty to serve this great country in a time of war is honorable. Wether it is picking up tin as the earlier person stated, or "Rosie the Riviter". But this, as well intentioned as it is, cheapens the deaths and scars of those who went in harms way. My kudos to this man who stepped up to the plate to do the right thing, but this goes a little to far.
