To Touch His Coffin Had to Suffice

http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/kcur/local-kcur-914642.mp3

The casketed body of Army Staff Sergeant Shaun Mittler came back to his hometown of Gladstone, Missouri today. The body of the most recent Missouri soldier killed in Afghanistan was met by his mother, father and family. KCUR's Dan Verbeck watched at a small KCI terminal, away from commercial air traffic.
