We recently attended a funeral at Arlington National Cemetery. The post funeral luncheon was held at Fort Myer. You sense the historic tradition of this military post as soon as you enter the building. There are photos of military notables on the walls of the dining rooms. There is much to see at this historic site. Don't pass up an... More

Spent many hours there when I lived close by watching processions, listening to music and my father's funeral in the chapel. Please visit this area.

As retired military, both my wife and I go to Ft. Myer at least weekly, as it remains an Active military facility. Each time we pass through the gates we are reminded that Ft. Myer (now more formally known as "Joint Base Ft. Myer/Henderson Hall") has a very long history that is unknown to most people. For example, how many... More

We frequent Ft Myer for commissary and PX. We access the Arlington National Cemetery from the base as well and at certain times of the day, you can watch ceremonies and formations on base. Enjoy!

This is in our neighborhood. I've been visiting, using the PX and Commissary for over 30 years. For active duty personnel visiting the area, this is a good place to stop if you intend to visit the National Cemetery. Free parking and daylight access.

One of America's most historic Army posts (Orville Wright flew here in 1908), and current home to the "Old Guard" stables, and the Army Band, this is a working base with many functions not open to public visitors. However, visitors can enter with proper identification and security checks. Be patient and respectful, especially if you visit attached Arlington National Cemetery.

Observed Change of Command Ceremony for the US Army Installation Management Command. Beautiful Ceremony in all its Military Tradition. The Fife and Drum Corps presentation was incredible. Fort Myer is historic.

Great history and adjacent to Arlington national cemetery. If you can access the Fort, go to the library and learn about the history!

This is a great installation next to Arlington National Cemetary. The buildings are historic. The installation clean and well manicured. It's a nice quiet installation close to the hustle and bustle of DC.
