Katherine Cathey wanted to spend one last night sleeping next to her husband, so U.S. Marines made a bed for the pregnant woman and placed it next to 2nd Lt. James Cathey's casket. Then they quietly stood watch throughout the night.
Jim Sheeler, a reporter, observed until the young Colorado woman fell asleep, then slipped outside.
"I realized that the cars were still whizzing by -- the world was still going on with everything," he said. "And then I looked back in that window, and I could see her, and it was such an amazing, beautiful and terrible moment, and I just wished that I could make everybody look inside that window."
