This project focuses on bringing together all of the profiles of people buried at one of the world's most famous military cemeteries, Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia, United States.

Since its establishment on June 28, 1864, Arlington has become the final resting place for about 400,000 veterans and their immediate family members. Veterans and military casualties from each of the nation's wars are interred in the cemetery, ranging from the American Civil War through to the military actions in Afghanistan and Iraq. Pre-Civil War dead were reinterred after 1900.

Arlington is the final home not only to deceased American veterans, but also Canadians, Finns, Frenchmen, and more. There are also many presidents, senators, Congressmen, and other notables buried there.
