You may fly this Christmas. And there may be a dead
solider in the cargo hold.

Soldiers coming home form Iraq are supposed to be
treated with respect, including an honor guard. But
often they are packed as freight on commercial
airliners, stopping at local airports -- stuffed in
the belly of a plane with suitcases and other cargo.

John Holley and his wife, Stacey, were stunned when
they found out the body of their only child, Matthew
John Holley, who died in Iraq last month, would be
arriving at the airport as “freight.”

Matthew was a medic with the 101st Airborne unit and
died on Nov. 15.

"When someone dies in combat, they need to give them
due respect they deserve for (the) sacrifice they
made," said John Holley.

They called U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer, and Matthew was
greeted with honor and respect.

A representative from the Defense Department said she
did not know why this is happening.

Maybe because they just don’t care?
