    Default Should Kennedy be buried at Arlington?

    Eligibility website.

    http://www.arlingtoncemetery.net/eligib.htm

    Wikipedia's write up on the purpose and honor of Arlington:

    Arlington National Cemetery, in Arlington, Virginia is a military cemetery in the United States, established during the American Civil War on the grounds of Arlington House, formerly the estate of the family of Robert E. Lee's wife Mary Anna (Custis) Lee, a descendant of Martha Washington. The cemetery is situated directly across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. and near The Pentagon. It is served by the Arlington Cemetery station on the Blue Line of the Washington Metro system.
    More than 300,000 people are buried in an area of 624 acres (2.53 km2). Veterans and military casualties from every one of the nation's wars are interred in the cemetery, from the American Civil War through the military actions in Afghanistan and Iraq. Pre-Civil War dead were reinterred after 1900.
    Arlington National Cemetery and United States Soldiers' and Airmen's Home National Cemetery are administered by the Department of the Army. The other National Cemeteries are administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs or by the National Park Service. Arlington House (Custis-Lee Mansion) and its grounds are administered by the National Park Service as a memorial to Lee.

    Arlington is for men of Honor, and Valor.
    Not for Men that lack any semblance of either.

    And at the least, for fallen soldiers, not liars who buy their way out of a murder charge.

    It is a blaspheme to even consider it. But I am quite sure this Admin. will piss on Arlington just like they have every thing else that matters in this Country.

    JFK served with Great Valor and Honor as a PT Boat skipper during WWII....I have absolutely no issues with him what so ever with this honor.


    But the question at hand....my opinion is obvious!

    He served but if you look at the qualifications of JUST serving is not entry. There are millions that serve and don't get entry. I would challenge you guys to read the links I have posted in making this decision.

    This cemetary is a Military cemetary.
