WASHINGTON -- Space is becoming so scarce at Arlington National Cemetery that the announcement that three of the Americans killed in the bomb blast at the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya, would be buried there has helped reopen old wounds.None of the three -- Julian Bartley Sr., the consul general; his 20-year-old son, Jay Bartley; and Prabhi Guptara Kavaler, an administrative officer in the embassy -- served in the military.But because they died serving their country, their families and several members of Congress requested waivers for their burial at the cemetery in Arlington, Va. President Clinton and the Pentagon granted the waivers Friday.

General Greene, a former leader at Aberdeen Proving Ground who was shot to death last week in Afghanistan, was laid to rest during a somber ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. His wife, retired Col. Sue Myers, and their son, Lt. Matthew J. Greene, saluted his flag-draped coffin as a howitzer fired a 13-gun salute. The burial followed a private memorial service attended by 800 mourners, many in uniform, at Joint Base Myers-Henderson Hall.

Maj. Robert J. Marchanti II, 48, was buried Tuesday at Arlington National Cemetery.

Martin O'Malley ordered U.S. and Maryland flags flown at half-staff Tuesday in Marchanti's memory.
