Arlington National Cemetery is a lot more full than anyone knew. At a Senate hearing Wednesday, cemetery Executive Director Kathryn Condon estimated that more than 400,000 people are now interred there. That’s 20 percent more than previous estimates of about 330,000.
The new estimate comes as a meticulous grave-by-grave review is under way at the cemetery following reports in 2010 of misplaced remains and mismanagement that led the Army to oust the cemetery’s top leadership and install Condon to lead an overhaul.
