This military cemetery is online at http://www.arlingtoncemetery.mil/ and even has a twitterfeed.  🙂

First military funerals held in 1864, with more funerals held nearly every week.

This website has information for those seeking eligibility rules, pictures, historical information about many of the people buried in the cemetery.  And also, information about the presidents, generals, famous and those who gave us the ultimate sacrifice to keep us safe.

The website includes information about the Tomb of the Unknowns or Unknown Soldiers, visitor information, funeral scheduled, photo gallery and even a page about ceremonies they do & salutes, etc.

A definite place to visit if you are a graveyard rabbit for sure.  History, the stories behind every tombstone and even the sheer vastness of the cemetery itself.  An honored place with honored people buried within its gates.
