Wife Sleeps Along Side The Casket Of Her Husband…A Fallen U.S. Marine

Photo From: Facebook

Its a sight we have seen way too often. Family members say good-bye to the ones they love that have fallen victim to war. In the latest photo, a young lady requested that she be able to sleep along side her husband one last time, before his burial.

In the photo here, 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 “Cat.”

The Marines, per her request, stood guard the entire time she slept there along side her fallen hero. Katherine says that she thinks that her husband would have wanted it that way.

This photo should remind all Americans  of the sacrifices so many young men and women have made and continue to make for our GREAT country. It should further remind us of all the sacrifices families have made or make while their loved ones fight the good fight.  Such a sad photo, yet a photo we should all respect and admire.
