Re the Tomb of the Unknowns, "Line Drawn on Sacred Ground," Jan. 21: It seems to me when parents give their children to serve and fight for their country and sometimes die for their country, the country should whenever possible return that child to the parents.
* I had always been given to understand that the very purpose of the Tomb of the Unknowns is so that the family might feel warm in the hope, or even the belief, that the remains are those of their beloved.
* I'm sure the reaction of most Americans to the problem of the bones--and what to do with them--of the Russian Romanovs is disgust, disbelief and indifference (Jan. 22). But wait. Should we forget the billions already spent by our government to locate and return the remains of the Vietnam MIAs? Are we any different?
