It didn't matter whether the victim was Thai or a foreigner, the army was doing this to ease the burden of difficult funeral arrangements for families and everything was done free of charge. 

While it's good the military appear to be helping out here, I'm interested in why they are - did he have some links to the army?

How do they choose who they will help, given that the funerals are carried out for free?

quote "He was a 71 year old French national who was a company advisor with a Thai wife living in Pak Chong district."

 

He did have a Thai wife it seems, though what she thinks/thought about it was not mentioned.

yes I read the whole article 

 

so what you think happened 

 

seems like (and I will be a bit more brutal) he had no other options, his wife reaped the spoils and refused to deal with it in a dignified manner

 

RIP

I'm not creating an issue, I'm asking a specific question.

You say 'they are doing it for everyone'. That seems to be saying everyone will have an army funeral, irrespective if they want one or not.

I read the quote, this is what it states:

My genuine question still stands, "How do they choose who they will help?"

You are now being sophistic They say they are doing it for everyone which to any reasonable person means anyone who wants it, not me. It is logical that they will offer and the offer can be accepted or rejected You are creating an issue where there isn't one.

I'll leave there thanks. This is going downhill fast.

It is not so much that they are doing it for everyone, but to me, the question is why, and why now when they never did before?
