McCaskill: Arlington Cemetery grave gaffe growing
COLUMBIA, Mo. -- The Missouri senator whose subcommittee is investigating potential contracting fraud at Arlington National Cemetery says 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.
At a news conference Monday in Columbia, Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill said the number of burial site errors could be much higher. McCaskill said the Army report was limited to a small section of the cemetery.
