6/11/2010 - The remains of a U.S. Army noncommissioned officer are transported down the main thoroughfare of Joint Base Charleston, S.C., mid-morning June 11, 2010, as the Airmen lining the street salute the fallen comrade. The journey to a final resting place was made from the Middle East by way of Dover Air Force Base, Del., where the remains were meticulously prepared for military burial by the Mortuary Affairs Operations Center. U.S. Army honor guard members from Fort Jackson, S.C., received the remains upon arrival to JB CHS. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Daniel Bowles)
