As we head into Memorial Day Weekend, Military Times published “Arlington at 150 – Celebrating America’s Heroes,” written by staff photographer Mike Morones, accompanied by full screen images and video of ceremonies and spaces throughout Arlington National Cemetery. The piece is produced by Angy Peterson, Issa Chan, Amy Ng, Peter Shatzer, John Bretschneider, and Jennifer Milbrett.
The feature opens to an interview with former US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and goes on to offer historical context of the cemetery and the 3rd US Infantry Regiment, responsible for standing guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
It’s definitely worth a look. You can do so here.
