Welcome to brain stuff, a production of iHeartRadio. Hey, brain stuff, unworn Volker bomb, and this, this is a classic brain stuff episode. This one dives into the history and potential future of Arlington national cemetery. Because after all, a single cemetery can only hold so many residents. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren vogelbaum here. Back in 1864, the union was running out of space to bury Civil War casualties. Military officials decided to solve the problem by appropriating part of the Arlington Virginia plantation that belonged to Mary Anne custis Lee, the wife of confederate general Robert E. Lee, and turning it into a military burial ground. Private William christman, a 21 year old soldier from Pennsylvania, who died of the measles before he got a chance to see combat was the first to be buried there. According to the Arlington national cemetery website, though neither Robert E. Lee nor his wife ever tried to return to the former plantation, their eldest son eventually filed a lawsuit, claiming the land had been illegally seized, and in 1882 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed and Congress had to purchase the property from him for a $150,000 so that the national cemetery could continue. And here's that followed, Arlington national cemetery, which covers 624 acres, that's 252 hectares across the Potomac river from Washington, D.C., became perhaps the nation's most hallowed ground, the final resting place for many of the nation's military heroes, from general Douglas MacArthur and private Audie Murphy, the most decorated soldier of World War II to service members killed in the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, also buried at Arlington are explorers, astronauts, and Supreme Court Justices. The grave of president John F. Kennedy marked with a gas and electric eternal flame that's designed to remain lighted despite wind and rain, attracted more than 16 million mourners in the first three years after his 1963 assassination. But the cemetery, which has become the final resting place for more than 400,000 people, is rapidly filling up with more than 7000 being added each year. According to a report prepared by cemetery officials for Congress in 2017, there are fewer than 70,000 spaces left, and even with a current expansion project that will add nearly 11,000 below ground graves and 16,400 above ground spots, these cemetery is projected to be full by the early 2040s. The report said, ANC and those it exists to serve must therefore confront the reality that, at some point in the future, the cemetery will no longer continue to operate as it does today. Most veterans from the recent wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and the war on terrorism will not have the option to be buried at ANC. Even our heroes who are killed in action or those who have earned the Medal of Honor will not be buried at ANC with an approximately three decades due to a lack of space. At a March 2018 hearing by the House armed services committee, Karen Durham aguilera, executive director of the army's national military cemeteries, further described the predicament. She explained in an army media release, the current veteran population is over 20 million. The retiree population is over 2 million, the total force, both active and reserve is over 2 million right now. Today we have around a 100,000 available burial spaces. We can not serve that population. Even a proposed $274 million expansion that would add another 38 acres that's 15 hectares along these cemetery southern border would only buy an additional decade. That's why officials are now contemplating changing Arlington's eligibility requirements. Under the present rules, active duty members of the armed services, as well as service members who have served at least one day of active duty and stayed in uniform long enough, a traditionally 20 years to earn retirement benefits are eligible for below ground burial. So are their spouses and children. And so our recipients of various metals and prisoners of war who died after November 30th, 1993. In addition, active duty and retired members and their spouses and children, as well as reservists and National Guard members who died while on active duty or performing full-time service, are eligible for above ground burial in the columbarium, also known as the niche wall. In the 2017 report, army officials proposed a range of possible rule changes. The most restrictive option would allow in only those who were killed in action and or were awarded the Medal of Honor. The report said, this option can be expected to result in delaying closure of ANC for at least two centuries and less our nation experiences large scale conflict and higher numbers of service members killed in action. But such a move also would exclude the vast majority of military veterans and their families, and seems likely to encounter a pushback. Gerardo Avila, a deputy director of a veterans association called the American legion, says that the issue of what to do about Arlington is still in the discussion stages, though clearly, Arlington is reaching capacity and something needs to be done. In a resolution at the American legion's 2016 convention, the organization urged Congress to step in and pass a law that would limit Arlington to service members who die on active duty, a winners of the Medal of Honor and other decorations, World War II era veterans who left the service 30% or more disabled, prisoners of war and career service members. We spoke via email with John towels, director of national security and foreign affairs for the organization, veterans of foreign wars. The group is opposed to severe restrictions on eligibility for interment at Arlington. He said, we advocate for a solution that will ensure that the benefits that they earned through their service remain available to them. Because of this, the VFW can not support changes that would take benefits away from veterans and family members who have already earned them. Many of whom have already made plans to be buried at Arlington. Another option to restricting eligibility for Arlington would be to create a non continuous annex on land around the armed forces retirement home campus in Washington, D.C., about 8 and a half miles, that's 13 and a half kilometers away. Tao said that much of the site's expanse would be available. The United States soldiers and airmen's home national cemetery another burial ground operated by the army already is nearby. But if it becomes more difficult to be buried at Arlington, veterans still have the option of being buried at another of the a 135 national cemeteries that the national cemetery administration operates in 40 states and Puerto Rico. They would still be entitled to the same ceremony, presidential memorial certificate and perpetual care.

For safety sake by cemetery officials, President Trump says that's a ridiculous decision and reverses it in minutes on Twitter, wreaths are donated from all across the nation, beginning their journey on the beds of trucks loaded up in Maine, all the way to Virginia and Arlington National Cemetery there where they are given a hero's welcome.

Trump continues counterattack on military comments

"Joining us now is Ginger Gibson Deputy Washington digital editor at NBC News thanks for joining US Ginger. Back. Let's talk about some of the fallout from these comments that were attributed to president trump about the military. There's a story in the Atlantic by Jeffrey. Goldberg and he tells a couple of stories. One of them was from two thousand eighteen when he was going to visit a World War One cemetery in France that got canceled in that article, he said that you know, why should I go to that cemetery is filled with losers. He called some of the Marines at died suckers and the rest of the article goes on to. Talk about how he always didn't get along with John McCain words it. He says there, how would these comments played out? What's been the reaction to this so far? Let's start just from the beginning and make clear that trump has vehemently denied the descriptions and accounts that are in that article, some of his aides who were with them on that trip to France have. Also. Denied the accounts that are in this article insisting that he is a supporter of the troops but putting that aside, the descriptions that are in this article are just really detrimental to the president and to the positions that he's taken as someone who is such a supporter in cheerleader for American troops and I think what's clear here too is that he's not talking about. Military members all of these being losers who are who are actively engaged in warfare. He's talking about the ones who've been captured who have died who have been injured sort of people. He thinks that let the best be got them at war, which is really at odds with sort of what we as Americans view the way that people who sacrificed in our military arm. But the interesting thing with all of this is that there was not just the Atlantic there was other news agencies that independently confirmed some of this stuff fox. News Jennifer Griffin she also confirmed a lot of these details. and. As you mentioned the president obviously still saying that he denies all of this stuff but there are a lot of people that have confirmed the so far. That's right. We have seen other news organizations provide some confirmation of the remarks, the losers in the suckers remarks, and you know there are some aides that could have disputed this for example, General Kelly at one point in the article describes an exchange with the president at Arlington Cemetery General Kelly Son who died in Iraq is buried is not heard from General Kelly disputing this account. So there are those who say that there's of evidence. At this is an accurate account and on a political standpoint, we've seen Democrats really tried to run with this fighting campaign was quick to start having veterans come out and criticize the president for this remarks, Vice President Biden, himself who son Beau Biden who has since died of cancer and Iraq they cut advertisements very quickly describing the the remarks that are in this this. So it was clear from at least their vantage point that they saw this as a pretty devastating account of the president, and as you mentioned, you know the president has been a pretty vocal cheerleader of the military throughout. His presidency. So we'll see if this damages him in any way politically but we'll just leave it at that for now

Trump reportedly called service members "losers" and "suckers"

"Again in the Atlantic and it sets the scene all the way back in two thousand eighteen when trump was in. Paris he was supposed to visit a cemetery for soldiers who died in war and if you'll remember he didn't actually end up going because he said the helicopter couldn't fly because it was raining. And there was a big deal about that obviously because he was afraid of a little rain. He also tried to claim that the secret service wouldn't drive but Jeffrey Goldberg says neither claim was true. In reality he says trump rejected the idea of visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain and because he did not believe it was important honor American war dead in that is according to four people with firsthand knowledge of discussion that day. He goes on to say in a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit. Trump said quote why should I go to that cemetery? It's filled with losers. It continues in a separate conversation on the same trip trump referred to more than eighteen hundred marines who lost their lives at Bellawood as quote suckers for getting killed. Bellawood was apparently consequential battle in American history I don't remember it off the top of my head, but I'm just reading what's in the article here. And it says that in that same trip talking about world war. One trump asked who are the good guys in this war? He also said that he didn't understand why the United States would intervene on the side of the allies. Now you'll remember he said this about John McCain back in two thousand fifteen but lost. So I, never liked him as much after that because I don't like interest. But but Frank Franklin. We get to He. He's war hero. He's a war. He's a war hero presumes capture. I like people that weren't captured. Okay. I hate to. The article says that trump had remained fixated on McCain in that when he died back in August twenty, eighteen trump told his senior staff this time according to three sources with direct knowledge of quote we going to support that losers funeral end quote and that he became furious when he saw flags lowered to half-staff saying quote what the F. Are we doing that for guy was a f Ing Loser The White House denies this whole report by the way saying, then the Anti Yadda trump's supported the military more than any president. The article continues according to sources with knowledge of the president's views. He seems to genuinely not understand why Americans treat former prisoners of war with respect. Nor does he understand why pilots who are shot down in combat are honored by the military on at least two occasions since becoming president according to three sources with direct knowledge of his views trump referred to former president George h.w Bush as a quote loser for being shot down by the Japanese. This is where it starts to really get cruel on memorial day twenty, seventeen trump went with then department of Homeland Security Secretary John, Kelly to Arlington Cemetery. The article says the two men were set to visit section sixty, the fourteen acre area of the cemetery that it is burial ground for those killed in America's most recent wars. Kelly son Robert is buried in section sixty according to sources with knowledge of this visit trump while standing by Robert Kelly's grave turned directly to John Kelly in said quote I don't get it what was in it for them. Kelly said he originally thought trump was making a ham handed reference to these selflessness of America's all volunteer force. But later he came to realize that trump simply does not understand non transactional life choices. This is coming from one of Kelly's friends who Goldberg says a retired four. Star General. This friend says quote he can't fathom the idea of doing something for someone other than himself. He just thinks that anyone who does anything when there's no direct personal gain to be had is a sucker. There's no money in serving the nation trump can't imagine anyone else's pain. That's why he would say this to the father of a fallen marine on Memorial Day in the cemetery where he's buried. It goes on to talk about how trump is basically used the military as props how he thinks they answer only to not the constitution as evidenced by his gassing of peaceful protesters in officer who had firsthand knowledge of trump's views says quote. He has a lot of fear. He doesn't see the heroism in fighting and then Goldberg says several observers told me that trump is deeply anxious about dying or being disfigured in this worry manifests itself as disgust for those who have suffered. Than it tells another story about how trump falsely claimed he called quote virtually all of the family members of service members who had died during his term, and then when family started speaking out and saying, no, you didn't trump had to begin rush shipping condolences to those families. Felt last paragraph ends on, which is actually pretty profound. I didn't expect you know something. So big to be saved for the end I thought would be the author's own thoughts but it says in a twenty eighteen White House planning meeting for such an event trump asked to staff not to include wounded veterans on grounds that spectators would feel uncomfortable in the presence of amputees quote nobody wants to see that end quote. I think to me the details really do add credibility and he says he's talking to three or four sources all the time. But it got really interesting here when the Associated Press confirmed his sources essentially this tweet from James Laporta an investigative reporter former marine infantryman. Now, obviously, with the Associated Press, the port a tweeted out yesterday a senior Defense Department official I just spoke with confirmed this story by Jeffrey. Goldberg in its entirety especially the graphs about late senator, John McCain and former Marine General John Kelly president. Donald Trump's former chief of staff. So before that, you had people trying to push out, wouldn't say this. Of course, he didn't say this this is false. Trump. Himself devoted three tweets to claiming that was just a hoax made up by the media who are hungry to You know and his political career. But yeah, that was definitely a big shock when she came out in essentially confirmed most of the story. Republicans are doing their usual remaining silent or denying that it's still true. and. I just don't know how you could say it's not true. He said this in public but. I never liked him as much after that because I don't like. It was right out there and this other tweet from just some random twitter account but it made me think the commander in chief was found guilty stealing money from kids. Cancer charity mocks disabled reporters, gases, protesters for photo ops over twenty thousand lies kills one hundred, ninety, thousand Americans violate civil rights, incites violence calls, fallen soldiers, losers, and suckers. Yeah I guess if you put it against everything, we know about trump name calling certainly seems to be in his wheelhouse. Mentioned surprised that this came to be a big story

Trump says he should have visited Arlington National Cemetery on Veterans Day

"Loss. But you know, what was the one two punch though, it was not going to the to the to the memorial in France because it was raining combined with the then blowing off Arlington two days later in the United States better. The thing that I find just amazing. You know, we hear all sorts of crazy stuff coming from Trump all the time, it's somewhat become normalized. But to me what happened last weekend, you can't normalize that what had happened in France was a national embarrassment and then by not international international embarrassment. It's one of the more embarrassing moments. I think for our country since World War Two and we've done a lot of stupid things. But that's and that's the top five and then not going to the cemetery. Well, what do you mean? It was a mistake who what idiot wouldn't know that it was a mistake is he said he was busy busy. Oh my gosh. Well, of course, that is to be to be a leader, right? And to make a an example of how we honor those who have fought for our country. And are still fighting for our country all over the world. Well this yesterday on Thursday, the officials from the department of veterans affairs have told the house committee. They still don't know when they will be able to pay tens of thousands of veterans their GI Bill benefit payments on time. If at all, and there are veterans who we've made a promise to including the GI Bill. Some of them will not be able to continue their education. Some of them have said, they might lose everything because this is something that account so beyond the sort of you know, the ceremonial aspects of Veterans Day. I mean, President Trump from what I understand I've been reading, and I try to find out if this is untrue. But believe he's the first president since Kennedy to not Leary's that that's correct. At the two. All of the unknown soldier. And he also hasn't visited the troops in the field. He hasn't visited them in Afghanistan. He hasn't gone there rack that's something that both Obama and Bush did with before their second years in office, and the vice President Bush Bush would send suddenly show up on thanksgiving. Like, hey, we've got a special guest any would walk right now. Yeah. It's it's amazing. I mean, we owe everything to our veterans, and you know, I've walked from DuPont circle to Arlington cemetery. You can do it. And you don't have to it is no great feat of of being in shape. So I'm sure he could have easily taken a car from the White House to the cemetery and back probably done within an hour. It's it's just it's just such a callous disregard for those who have given us so much well, but frankly is much as that's a disregard as much as what happened Francis disregard. There is nothing more callous than what he's doing with the troops thousands of troops. He's deployed to the southern border as a political as a political stunt. They are props. They are human props that rather than being with their families. They're sitting there throwing pebbles at a border waiting for a caravan. And it should be pointed out that these troops aren't anywhere near where the this caravan is expected to cross the border. No, they're like thousands of ninety there in Tucson ninety miles from the border. And I read that this could take up to six months for the, you know, the bulk of the folks that were walking three miles is yet to some of them are within the next few days. The mayor of Tijuana has asked the Mexican government for more resources in order to help. Those who have arrived there, obviously a border town. That has a has a lot of issues when it comes to people trying to enter the United States ending up. Having a stay there or else being turned back around. So there's a lot going on. I'm not
