The Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia, is the final resting place for over 400,000 veterans from around the world. But when service pilot Elaine Harmon -- who was one of the first women to fly military planes for the United States during World War II as part of the Women Air Force Service Pilots -- died last year, her ashes were denied burial at the national cemetery.

Now, her granddaughter Erin Miller is fighting for that decision to be overturned. Learn more in the video above.
