Arlington National Cemetery

Arlington National Cemetery


Any current or former U.S. service members buried in Arlington National Cemetery will receive a special honor of a member of a special group of women known as "The Arlington Ladies." As the co-anchor Jeff Glori reported in "The Early Show" on Memorial Day, take part in any funeral at the cemetery - a daily average of about 30 - it certainly is not veteran, being buried without a civilian witness - to tell if Glori said that "I can say on behalf of the soldiers and the country," You are not forgotten. "

"The significance of Arlington National Cemetery is almost overwhelming," Joayn Bahr, one of about 65 Arlington Ladies, told CBS News. He is the representative of the Army Arlington Ladies. Each member of the Arlington Ladies is not served in the military, or is related to someone who is.

"In many cases," said Bahr, "where family members can not come for health reasons, because of the distance of the journey, and I never want someone who gave their lives and service in this country to forget. "Arlington is our nation's most sacred and buried, Bahr says," If you look around and see the granite headstones, you see all the people who cared about our country enough to defend it and fight for freedom.
