This story about a widow trying to find out if her husband was killed at D-Day is fascinating all by itself. 

The really interesting thing is that as much lip service as gets paid to how much they value the military, her congressman lied about having checked into the story with the National Archives.  They simply made up an answer and told her that they had. 

I looked up the party affiliation for Congressman Mac Thornberry and naturally he's a very conservative Republican.  All Congressional staffs make mistakes, but sometimes those mistakes are telling. What's it suggest about the Congressman's actual patriotism?

So much has been written about Todd Akin's "legitimate rape" comment and what it meant, I just thought I'd give the blogosphere a break :} and share this story about how one congressional office treated a military widow.
