Louisiana National Guard Defies Pentagon.

The Louisiana National Guard has allowed a CBS news crew to film the arrival of six soldiers’ coffins at the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in Belle Chasse, Louisiana. Lieutenant-Colonel Pete Schneider told CBS “What we thought was, we're going to do what the family asked us to do.” The six soldiers, all of which had served in the Louisiana National Guard died last Thursday after their vehicle hit a roadside bomb in Baghdad.
