Arlington Cemetery To Issue Report On Grave Checks

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - Arlington National Cemetery will report to Congress on its review into the accuracy of its gravestones and burial sites.

Congress ordered the report, due today, in the wake of revelations that some people had been buried in the wrong place or in misidentified and unidentified grave sites. Those reports led to the ouster of the cemetery's top two officials last year.

An interim report from the cemetery last month found no further evidence of misplaced or misidentified gravesites after individual checks had been made of roughly 260,000 grave markers. But the report found potentially tens of thousands of discrepancies between the information on headstones and that contained on internal cemetery paperwork.

So far, the cemetery has generally earned high praise from Congress for its efforts to reform past practices.
