The man responsible for tracking billions in U.S. taxpayer money paying for projects in Afghanistan claims he’s under pressure to be quiet about his findings.
John Sopko, the special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction, said American officials have told him to stop running audits that expose fraud, waste and abuse.

An organization is searching the nation’s funeral homes to find the unclaimed remains of veterans in order to give them a fitting burial. 
Since 2006 the Missing In America Project has discovered the ashes of more than 2,000 veterans — including six from the Civil War – left unclaimed.
Veterans applauded when President Obama signed a bill in January creating a registry to follow the health of troops exposed to burn pits in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Some troops blame the burn pits for medical problems ranging from shortness of breath to lung diseases and tumors.
