Day 6: Something you hope you never have to do

This is sort of a two edged blade, I check my husband almost weekly for any bodily markings or scarrings etc so that should I be needed to identify his body I can.

I don’t ever want to have to identify his mutilated body by the little birth mark on his ankle (or elbow), I don’t want to have to identify it at all.

I am not sure I would cope with seeing him dead let alone so mangled, burnt, shredded, bloody – whatever that I can’t tell from his face that it is him.

But I have made sure I would be able to tell it is him should I need to.  I don’t know why, it really freaks me out when I catch myself mentally doing it….but there you go.

    I made the mistake of asking why husband had duplicate dog tags – which is one can be removed to identify him if they can’t remove/retrieve his body.
