It's the portion of the national military cemetery that has been reserved for the fallen of Iraq and Afghanistan, and this stirring documentary offers a four-month snapshot of visiting family and friends as they try to come to terms with their losses upon this honored and too-trafficked ground. 53 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
It has been called "the saddest acre in America." It is also one of the most sacred. Situated in a quiet pocket of Arlington National Cemetery, Section 60 is a final resting place for young men and women who died fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. For families and friends, it is a place to grieve, to honor, to remember - and to find comfort and community with others who have shared the same profound loss. Emmy-«-winning producers Jon Alpert and Matthew O'Neill (Baghdad ER) capture the profound combination of loss, love and pride felt by cemetery visitors through Section 60: Arlington National Cemetery, underscoring the high human toll exacted by recent military conflicts while honoring those who sacrificed their lives for America.
