So calm

We thought this was so beautiful, especially with the snow. So very pristine and peaceful. Made me feel so humble and blessed to have men and women who gave their all for me.

I'm a vet and the only reason I'd like to be interned here is if my family insisted on it after I died because it would be close to them. Hot looking poorly maintained cemetery in the desert. Comparable to the one in Norther Nevada where the dust and sage looks like it blows through.

My wife and I always try to visit each National Cemetery in the areas we visit. These cemeteries are so impressive. We are in awe of how the above ground headstones line up so perfectly no matter what direction you look - reminds me of being in formation during my military days. You cannot help but feel so proud of... More

This place like the other National Cemeteries is very special. It is impressive just driving by but if you take the time to walk up the hill you will see about 30,000 more small grave markers. The site was fist created in 1870 as a burial site for Union soldiers who died at the Battle of Glorieta Pass a few... More

Our hotel overlooked the rolling hills of the Santa Fe National Cemetery. For me there is a sense of admiration for the men and women who served our country. A beautiful setting to show respect for these citizens. Thank you for your service.

So much history here. Mass burials from civil, WW I and II here. Have to read the head stones. So many unknown veterans. Allow time because takes awhile to read all the material here.

The Santa Fe national cemetery is well maintained and has beautiful views of the Santa Fe and Albuquerque mountains. Stop at the visitors center when you first arrive to look up specific plot locations.

Graves are all in a row, otherwise, nothing notable to be worth going for. Could us some sculptures, plaques, info on the graves.

Happened to be in Santa Fe on Memorial weekend. Made a trip to cemetery and was very much impressed. Rows and rows of perfectly aligned white stones all adorned with an American Flag for the occasion. Just got out of car and stood and gave thanks that so many people loved our country enough to devote a big part of... More

No admission and a way to see and honor our service veterans. Very peaceful and is a scenic location.
