Arlington National Cemetery has planned a series of events to commemorate its 150th anniversary in May and June.
As Arlington marks its 150th anniversary this year with tours and events, historians note that its roots are firmly planted in the Civil War.
When it came to making sure the residents of Arlington are prepared for an emergency, the Emergency Management Office realized they had a problem. "How to reach the vulnerable population that we're not reaching via social media or any technological outlets", said Arlington Emergency Management Public Information Officer Grelia Soliz.
To get the word out, volunteers visited a local living facility and distributed emergency kits.
The Phoenix Derby, featuring an open ride and several races, returns to a Crystal City parking garage Saturday afternoon.
