News Alert: Bodies misidentified at Arlington Cemetery, Army says
03:03 PM EDT Thursday, June 10, 2010

The Army says at least 200 remains in Arlington National Cemetery have been misidentified or misplaced, casting a shadow over what has been called America’s “sacred ground.”

Defense officials say the Army has forced out the cemetery’s two civilian leaders and appointed a new chief.

Army investigators at Arlington Cemetery have found what appear to be over 100 unmarked graves, scores of apparently empty graves marked with headstones, and at least four burial urns that had been inadvertently unearthed and dumped in the cemetery’s “spoils” area where excess grave dirt is stored.

They found a “dysfunctional” and chaotic management system, poisoned by bitterness between the superintendent and a top subordinate and hobbled by antiquated record keeping
