From the VA:

1. Shinseki To Commemorate Veterans Day At White House, Arlington National Cemetery. In a story offering details on Veterans Day activities planned by the Obama Administration, the “Federal Eye” blog for the Washington Post (11/11, O’Keefe, 605K) says that while the President and First Lady “will still be overseas”
on Thursday, Vice President Biden is scheduled to host a “Veterans Day
breakfast at the White House,” lay a “wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns
at Arlington National Cemetery and give a speech at the Memorial
Amphitheater.” Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki, who will
“attend Biden’s Veterans Day breakfast at the White House and the
events” at Arlington National Cemetery, “plans to attend receptions
hosted by the Legion of Valor and the Paralyzed Veterans of America
organizations.”

Pentagon Hopes NCA Inspires Improvement At Arlington.
The Washington Post
(11/11, O’Keefe, 605K) notes that the “1,700…mostly military veterans”
working at the US Department of Veterans Affairs’ National Cemetery
Administration (NCA) are under “strict orders” to treat each burial
“with…dignity and respect.” To ensure that this happens, landscapers,
“grave diggers, family representatives and cemetery directors must
attend training courses in St. Louis that, depending on the job, last
from four days to a year. The Defense Department last month asked NCA to
retrain workers from the scandal-plagued Arlington National Cemetery,
hoping the tiny agency’s deep devotion to perfection will rub off and
keep lawmakers from transferring the nation’s most famous military
cemetery out of the Army’s hands.”
