U.S. Troop Coffin Photos to be Allowed

Ad Feedback

The Pentagon has lifted the ban on photographs of the returning coffins of America's fallen soldiers.

Pictures of the flag-draped coffins arriving at Dover Air Force Base in Deleware will be allowed if the families give permission.

Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said he's lifting the ban because he favors honoring America's war dead.
