This might actually be one of the biggest differences between President Obama and President Bush.  The AP notes:

Obama’s predecessor, President George W. Bush, visited the families of hundreds of fallen soldiers but did not attend any military funerals or go to Dover to receive the coffins.

Seeing the human consequences of a war are critical to any leader understanding it, as far as I’m concerned. Obama is doing the right thing here.
