Graves are stripped of mementos at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington
A combination shows a broken heart which has been stripped from the gravestone of a soldier killed in Afghanistan at Arlington National Cemetery October 7, 2013. The cemetery has recently begun enforcing a policy that forbids the placing of mementos on graves, notably in Section 60, which contains graves from those killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. The cleanup has outraged many families of those buried here. The top photo was taken March 13, 2013, the bottom photo October 7, 2013.
