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.

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.

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

Two of my grandfathers are buried here. The grounds are always clean and groomed. It is rich with the history of our vets. A very humbling place to visit.

We walked through the cemetery to see the chapel. It was actually closed when we arrived, but there was staff preparing for a funeral so they let us in to take a peek. It was very lovely and reminded me of the San Miguel Mission we saw earlier because of the wooden beam ceilings.

The military cemetery was interesting in that wives were buried with their husbands. not sure whether it was vice versa. The day was sunny and the landscape well kept and beautiful. moments for reflection about war - of which several were... More

Drove by several times and was overwhelmed at the size of this National Cemetery. All of the head stones are the same.

Just drove past and was awe struck. Should have gone to visit. It looks like Arlington and immaculate from the car. I did not know it was there or I would have put it on my radar to visit.
