Arlington National Cemetery Back In Order
The Pentagon's inspector general says Arlington National Cemetery has rebounded from a scandal over mismanagement that led to the misidentification of graves. The IG says the cemetery is now a "premiere" institution that can set the standard for other federal cemeteries. The report credits the cemetery's new leaders, who took over following the scandal. The cemetery now uses geospatial technology to track its burials. Officials are nearly done verifying the names and dates on all the headstones and grave markers. More than 400,000 people are buried there, some dating back 150 years.
