Human remains fall under war trophy/souvenirs.Individual War Souvenirs may only be acquired if specifically authorized by USCENTCOM. Absent such express authorization, no weapon, munitions, or military article of equipment obtained or acquired by any means other than official issue may be retained for personal use or shipped out of the USCENTCOM AOR for personal retention.
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
War TrophiesGUIDE NOTE: The below story is from the Marine Corps News Service, but War Trophy Guidance is derived from DOD Directives and apply to all of the services.
Some war trophies are downright sadistic - for example, enemy teeth or body parts. Needless to say, they're banned by military law.
You really think taking photos of dead bodies and human remains is acceptable by law??? The military confiscated the photos before it was a murder investigation, and before they knew the people were murdered.
They had a video clip called "motorcycle kill" and they claimed they were killing members of the Taliban. It didn't matter if the were Taliban or not, the military took the videos and photos and told them to stop trading them...
