Arlington grave mix-up continues

Posted by Iva Radman – email

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The US Army now says just two people were buried in the wrong graves at Arlington National Cemetery.

The Army made the announcement as it followed up an investigation into burial mix-ups at one of the nation's most hallowed sites.

After a report issued in June found that the problems could potentially affect thousands of graves, defense leaders received about 1,000 calls from worried families.

The Army Secretary appointed a new chief to conduct a more thorough investigation to sort out the mix-ups.
