Arlington National Cemetery, Special Inspection: Final Report (ISBN: 9781437935851)
By R. Steven Whitcomb
(Paperback, 27 pages, 2010, $20)

Army investigators at Arlington National Cemetery have found more than 100 unmarked graves, scores of grave sites with headstones that are not recorded on cemetery maps, and at least four burial urns that had been unearthed and dumped in an area where excess grave dirt is kept, the Washington Post reports.

This inspection report on operations at Arlington National Cemetery (ANC) addresses the problems that had been uncovered by a recent inquiry: improper internment; trans-internment of remains, including the loss of accountability of remains; remains in graves listed as empty; unmarked grave sites; improperly marked graves; and improper handling of remains.

This report, which was conducted from August 17, 2009 to January 28, 2010, found that mistakes were still being made at ANC. The inspection team determined that, while the staff is dedicated to accomplishing the cemetery’s three primary tasks of funerals, ceremonies, and tourism support, there are issues that the Army must address to improve the effectiveness of operations at ANC.
