ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Arlington Ladies, a group of women who volunteer to attend U.S. Army funerals held at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C. The group was established in 1973 by Julia Abrams, the wife of Army Chief of Staff General Creighton Abrams, Jr., who became concerned about soldiers being buried alone. Members of the group also extend to grieving family members the sympathy of the Army chief of staff and the entire Army family. The author says that the ladies' service is representative of the Army's value of selfless service.
