[i]An Arlington spokesman said they were responding to complaints that the cemetery was looking too disorderly, and said [b]the section needed to follow the same rules as the rest of the site.[/b][/i] [/quote] Yes in August they said they were going to be keeping the area cleaner and they were, the families all knew about it, that's was back in AUGUST. Meaning that policy change had been in place for months already. But that's not what they said when they cleared the place out on October first the first night of the government shutdown. [quote:][i]The cemetery’s advisory board, “is wrestling with these issues as they develop and recommend a permanent policy,” said Lynch, the spokeswoman. “[b]The fact is that Arlington National Cemetery is not the Vietnam War memorial or the World War II memorial — it is a functioning cemetery, and we must remain true to that mission.”[/i][/b][/quote] That was their quote along with this next quote on October first. They also admit there is no permanent policy in place! That they never removed section 60's old policies which did allow for this for the last decade, they admit it right in the exact official quote. [quote:]Arlington National Cemetery remains operational for interment operations and will be open to the general public in the event of a lapse in appropriations for much of the federal government. [b]However, the National Park Service plans to curtail operations. At Arlington National Cemetery, the Arlington House will be closed for the duration of the government shutdown, and the Martz Tour tram service managed by the National Park Service will be temporarily suspended.[/b] [/quote] [color=red][b]They shut it down because the administration considered it a memorial period. [/b][/color] What else are they saying? That's right.... [quote:] [b]There has been backlash from families, but it appears that Arlington National Cemetery will, [color=red]at least for now[/color], adhere to their policy in an effort to maintain the dignity of the hallowed grounds.[/b][/quote] http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2013-10-01/national/42565096_1_section-60-arlington-national-cemetery-war-dead http://www.arlingtoncemetery.mil/News/NewsItem.aspx?ID=376a2906-6584-4468-89e5-0c697e28f662 [/quote] I told you all it was because of the shutdown period, announced 18 hours ago [color=red][b]Arlington makes memento exception in section with Iraq, Afghanistan dead[/b][/color] THEY SHUT IT DOWN AS A MEMORIAL PERIOD! it's political BS and someones head needs to roll. [b]And to all the shills bite me, because they shut it down on October first and opened it as soon as the deal was announced.[/b] At no point was their a policy in place to strip it all down on October first. http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/arlington-makes-memento-exception-in-section-with-iraq-afghanistan-dead/2013/10/15/a77cb46a-35cf-11e3-be86-6aeaa439845b_story.html [/quote]
The carefully-chosen mementos that cover graves in Section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery offer a deeply personal glimpse into the lives of grieving military families.
These reminders have now been scrubbed away following a new policy which has banned family and friends from placing tributes on the graves.
Headstones have been stripped of photos, drawings and poignant notes, in particular those in Section 60, home to the graves of more than 800 service members killed while doing their duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.
