Arlington Cemetery Could Be Running Out of Space

Congress is wrestling with what to do when the inevitable happens.

Sometime in the next two decades, Arlington National Cemetery, the iconic resting place for generations of military veterans, will no longer be able to accommodate new arrivals.

“Unfortunately, the cemetery is rapidly running out of space. If nothing is done, in a matter of 23 short years, the cemetery will be closed for new burials,” said Rep. Mike Coffman, R-Colo., at a House subcommittee hearing this week.

Congress is looking at two options to extend the life of Arlington as an active cemetery: making it harder to get in, or finding more hallowed ground.
