Stables worth a visit!

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

Very impressed with the ceremony this fort put on for 8 of our WWII heroes. It is a memory that will live forever in my heart!

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

Adjacent to Arlington National Cemetery and home to the US Army Honor Guard known as the Old Guard of the 3rd Infantry Regiment. This unit is the one that Guards the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington and provides the... More

This is a very old Army Post. This is the home of the Old Guard. It is a beautiful post to visit. Many of the funerals for those buried in Arlington are conducted at the Chapel on Ft. Myer. You need a military ID to enter.

We went to see the base where my Grandson is stationed, as an Honor Guard. The housing for the officers and the buildings, in general, are very representative of Old Virginia architecture. Lots of charm and greenery. Don't miss seeing the horses and stables at the Caisson Platoon.

Went to an army review at Conmy Hall and had lunch with the troops for an army reunion. I was stationed here over 40 years ago and the place still has memories and charm.

We were there to see a nephew honored. Before 9-11 you could take a shortcut through the base now you are stopped. Asked to step out of the car, hood up, trunk up etc. while being surveilled by armed gaurds. After showing proof of invitation and ID we were permitted to pass. A behind the scene look at young men... More
