'Taking Chance' and other Military things

1) What's the article about? Summarize it.
The article is about how the ban on photos of flag-cladded coffins were banned because of the privicy, or rather how Americans see the war. It talks about how they got rid of the ban and are starting to show more on the ending result of the war. No more postive, let's see negative. Bring them home type processes.

2) How does the story connect to our journalism class and journalism as a profession in general?
The story shows that journalists are prohibited from certin stories to 'protect' the government or how we, as a student newspaper, cannot show certin things because of perceptions.

3) What questions does the story leave you with after reading it? List at least two
My questions are, 'why can there be a ban when no one knows who is in the coffins?' and 'why did it take so long to take the ban off?'
