Longest Roll Call Ever?

In observance of Memorial Day, roll will be called for the 150,000 people buried at America's busiest national cemetery in Riverside, California.

At least 330 volunteers are needed to each read names for an hour, starting May 16 and around the clock until the list is finished.
National cemeteries have done roll calls of those interred within a year, but none has ever attempted a recitation of the entire list of buried veterans. [Link]
