Public Survey on the Future of Arlington Cemetery
Arlington National Cemetery (ANC) is conducting a public survey to measure the public attitude toward restricting eligibility for burial at the cemetery and/or expanding the grounds of the cemetery. ANC has approximately twenty-five years at the current burial rate before it runs out of space and will no longer be an active cemetery that honors our Nation’s veterans. In order to significantly extend ANC’s capacity, changes to either eligibility criteria and/or expansion of the geographic footprint are required.
ANC is managed by the Department of the Army and does not fall under any of the rules and regulations of veteran’s cemeteries that are administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs. ANC is a living monument to those who have served. It should remain an active place for reflection and a testament to future generations about how we remember and honor those who served.
