Rocky Mountain News has a special report titled "Final Salute." It is drawn from the work by its Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, Jim Sheeler, who spent two years following Marine Corps Major Steve Beck as Beck worked with the families of Marines who died. Sheeler's work is also the subject of a book published May 1 of this year, also titled Final Salute.
The Rocky Mountain News page includes a slide show of touching photos, a video, and a 24-page newspaper story about Sheeler's time spent helping the family of a young Marine who died in Iraq.
"People think that after the funeral, we're finished," Beck said. "It's not over. It's not over at all. We have to keep taking care of the families."
