Army National Military Cemeteries


Ms. Karen Durham Aguilera Executive DirectorSince May 1864, Arlington National Cemetery has continuously interred or inurned more than 400,000 people with honor in this sacred place, which has become a National Shrine. Today I am proud to lead a workforce of dedicated professionals who pay tribute to our nation's heroes each day with dignity and respect. It is my responsibility to ensure each and every veteran and their loved one laid to rest here receives the care, attention to detail, and utmost professionalism he or she has earned through service to this nation.

We are entrusted with this sacred duty, and every day we honor fallen heroes from current conflicts across the globe, as well as veterans of World War II, the Korean conflict, Vietnam, and the Cold War and their family members.

I am honored to be the Executive Director of the Army National Military Cemeteries and I hope you find a meaningful experience during your time at the cemetery and through this website.
