Fort Meade, MD - A green beret of a fallen U.S. Army soldier sits in the In-House cabinet inside of the mortuary affairs uniform room at Dover Air Force Base, Delaware. The Inbound and In-House cabinets serve as a way to track the uniform needs of fallen service members. The Air Force mortuary affairs unit at Dover remains prepared to service multiple fallen service members at one time, but the numbers have decreased dramatically after the draw down of military troops in Operation Enduring Freedom.
