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.

See the horses and learn the work that riders/soldiers undertake to provide for very moving funerals for our servicemen and women.

Fort Myer is home to the Old Guard and provides the escort for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The post is adjacent to the Arlington National Cemetery and has two chapels which are often used for military funerals. The post is also home to the U.S. Army Band.

One of the nicest, cleanest, safest Army military installations in the world. Just recently, now a Joint Base with nearby USMC-Henderson Hall. If you are retired military and/or have authorization to access military installations, you MUST visit Ft. Myer and experience a First Class shopping experience at the well-stocked Commissary and a newly renovated Post Exchange. AAFES also operates a... More
