Arlington Cemetery is the national cemetery ?
Arlington was not even a well known National Cemetery (there are 147 of them in the USA, 19 of them in Virginia alone-70% of the Civil War was fought in Virginia, and about half of the Revolutionary war as well), until John F. Kennedy was buried there. Since then, burials have sky-rocketed. The cemetery recently took over an adjoining US Naval Facility (the Navy Annex) to increase its size. But that is pretty much it-there is no real room left to grow. They now push columbarium burial.
Who is buried in Arlington Cemetery ?
"On Memorial Day, 1921, four unknowns were exhumed from four World War I American cemeteries in France. U.S. Army Sgt. Edward F. Younger, who was wounded in combat, highly decorated for valor and received the Distinguished Service Medal in "The Great War, the war to end all wars," selected the Unknown Soldier of World War I from four identical caskets at the city hall in Chalons-sur-Marne, France, Oct. 24, 1921. Sgt. Younger selected the unknown by placing a spray of white roses on one of the caskets. He chose the third casket from the left. The chosen unknown soldier was transported to the United States aboard the USS Olympia. Those remaining were interred in the Meuse Argonne Cemetery, France."
