Arlington: In Eternal Vigil is a powerful, inspiring and thought-provoking Documentary using Arlington National Cemetery as a platform for discovering the source of America’s greatness – our nation s legacy of service, sacrifice, and commitment to the key values of freedom and duty.
The program was shot entirely in beautiful high-definition video and features spectacular panoramic footage of Arlington, never before seen archival footage, a stirring original music score by Emmy Award winning composer David Barrett, and original interviews with prominent figures relevant to Arlington National Cemetery.

At the heart of the Special are the great, untold stories of ordinary men and women, some known but mostly unknown, who, through their dedication and commitment, made extraordinary contributions to our nation and the cause of freedom around the world.
