Escaped elephants, beaches, Little Saigon – think you know Arlington, Virginia? Once home to General Robert E. Lee, Arlington has also been home to a world-themed amusement park and Tops Drivette. It was where Orville Wright tested planes and where desegregation was first implemented in Virginia's public schools. WETA TV 26 brings you these stories and more in its new production "ARLINGTON: HEROES, HISTORY & HAMBURGERS." The documentary premieres December 2 at 8 p.m. and airs several times throughout December on TV 26.
Honored to Serve, a WETA TV 26 broadcast and community engagement initiative, spotlights those who serve in America's military and their families at home, and seeks to foster a deeper appreciation of the U.S. military and its history.
