Remembering Frank Lautenberg, One Year Later

It has now been one year since the Senate lost its last sitting member to serve in World War II.

As our David Hawkings notes in today’s Roll Call, there will be no more World War II veterans serving on either side of the Rotunda come the next Congress.

Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg of New Jersey died one year ago today. His final resting place is on a hill at Arlington National Cemetery not far from the Kennedy grave sites.

While at Arlington on a beautiful day over the Memorial Day weekend, this reporter stopped at the Lautenberg plot and discovered this wreath and portrait of a young Lautenberg:

A more permanent headstone had not been installed, as of that Memorial Day weekend visit. A spokeswoman for the cemetery said that the Lautenberg family was having a marker made by a private vendor.

Here’s a look back at some of our coverage of Lautenberg’s death and remembrances, along with an album of photos from the pages of Roll Call:

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

    I have been browsing on-line greater than three hours as of late, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty value sufficient for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the net shall be a lot more helpful than ever before.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100 certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
