Vet Burials

Feministing has a post whining about providing military honors at funerals for vets who committed crimes they don't approve of after their service. In particular they think that someone has been convicted of rape should not recieve military honors at their funeral even if their service had been honorable.

I can see such a position if the rape occuring during the military service, but I don't understand why they think someone who did something bad later should have his service besmirched retroactively.

How about someone convicted of a DWI? Should we ask MADD for permission about giving them military honors after their death? It's just grandstanding nonsense.
