Sen­a­tor: Ceme­tery woes grow­ing

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

COLUMBIA, Mo. — Demo­cratic Sen. Claire McCaskill of Mis­souri, whose sub­com­mit­tee is in­ves­ti­gat­ing pos­si­ble con­tract­ing fraud at Ar­ling­ton Na­tional Ceme­tery, said the num­ber of mis­la­beled graves there could be in the thou­sands. An in­ter­nal Army in­ves­ti­ga­tion found at least 211 dis­crep­an­cies be­tween burial maps and grave sites at Ar­ling­ton. The re­view found lax man­age­ment of the ceme­tery and a re­liance on paper records to man­age the burial sites.
