Comments on: Those left behind: The legacy of Arlington’s Section 60 What makes a great picture? Tue, 29 Nov 2016 17:31:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: 300 Wed, 02 Oct 2013 18:11:40 +0000 Now they have taken away the right of family members to leave a special token at the grave site of a loved one.

How sad.

By: GoMiddies Tue, 31 May 2011 00:26:17 +0000 I visited Arlington on 11 September 2010 just before the USNA/Georgia Southern game. Really hot day, beautiful sunshine. As I walked around Arlington, I was struck by the beauty of it but it’s hard to get the reason for its existence out of one’s head…

… this story brings it all back. It’s really tough to type comments with a lump in one’s throat and cloudy vision. I’m Canadian but revere Arlington with a passion to rival most Americans.

LOVE, Mom and Dad

By: ndsq Tue, 09 Feb 2010 19:50:48 +0000 Our son SGT Nickolas A. Mueller now rest in section 60. Nick and nine others died when their helicopter crashed in Afganistan, October 26th, 2009. GOD BLESS THEM ALL!
We pray for and support our military every day. Without them over there, they would be over here.
A Poem written by Jean Pomeroy that I enjoy very much…

Think of me and I am with you,
Living in a different way,
Never really gone completely,
Close in spirit day by day.

Touch me in your deepest memory,
Know that I am always there.
In your heart you’ll find me waiting,
Speak to me in gentle prayer.

Watch for at every sunrise,
See me in the star-lit sky.
Feel my love, it’s with you always.
Love eternal, you and I.

Nick, We Love you, We Miss you. GOD

My heart goes out to those who have lost loved one’s and my chest swells with pride for those brave men and women who serve our country past and present.


By: Rose321 Sun, 27 Dec 2009 22:24:23 +0000 I was 35 minutes late to a dinner party tonight. I’m usually horribly anxious if I’m not on schedule, but this is one time that I didn’t feel the slightest twinge of anxiety. I was riveted motionless by your work. You and Angelica have truly captured the pride and the devastating sadness that war brings. Your work is beautiful and haunting. Deeply moving, Larry.


By: johnmueller Fri, 18 Dec 2009 00:36:19 +0000 My brother, Sgt. Nickolas Mueller, was buried in Section 60 after being killed in Afganistan on Oct. 26, 2009. Having my brother buried in Arlington was very humbling. He and his brothers and sisters that laid their lives down during this war and every other war are truly heros. Knowing that so many people will walk by my brother everyday makes me feel a little bit better about my brother being so far away from home.
God bless the men and women in arms who serve this county every day, and keep us free. And God Bless those men and women who have served.
Nick, we miss you and think of you every day.

What a powerful and moving tribute to those who served and gave the ultimate sacrifice.

And what testimony to your skill as a storyteller!

You always have been a true professional… able to evoke the deepest of emotions, through your work.

You remind us, vividly, of the cost of freedom.

Amazing gift you have. I’m glad and proud to call you a friend.
