Touched by general's funeral [Letter]

The photos of Gen. Harry Greene's funeral at Arlington National Cemetery were stunning, especially the two of his widow placing a rose on the coffin while their son was reaching to comfort her and the one of General Greene's daughter. Thank you for publishing these photos in color, and thanks to the photographer for excellent work. They took my breath away with sadness and sorrow for them.

Mary Felter, Arnold
