i want to put two widows together (who normally would have no contact with each other) whose husbands were both killed in the raid.
Generally, the bodies are taken to a US facility and processed over to the Red Cross. They acts as liaison to get the bodies back to the families. I don't know how long that takes but Muslim law has pretty strict burial requirements. We try to treat their war dead as respectfully as we do our own.
