Uncertain Whether Right People Are Buried In A Number Of Graves

WASHINGTON (AP) - Pentagon officials say it's uncertain whether
the right people are buried in a number of graves at Arlington
National Cemetery because of poor management and record keeping.
Two defense officials say Army Secretary John McHugh will
discuss problems with burials Thursday, when he releases the
results of an investigation at Arlington. They spoke on condition
of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the
findings.
The famous military cemetery is the resting place of some
300,000, including many of America's war veterans, presidents and
dignitaries.
The officials say two top managers at the cemetery could face
punishment. John C. Metzler Jr., the cemetery superintendent for
the past 19 years, recently announced his retirement.
