Problem with grave IDs at Arlington

 Washington D.C. (AP) - Pentagon officials say it's uncertain whether the right people are buried in a number of graves at Arlington National Cemetery because of poor management and record keeping.

Two defense officials say Army Secretary John McHugh will release the results of an investigation at Arlington today. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the findings.

The famous military cemetery is the resting place of some 300,000, including many of America's war veterans, presidents and
dignitaries.

The officials say two top managers at the cemetery could face punishment. John C. Metzler Jr., the cemetery superintendent for
the past 19 years, recently announced his retirement.
