For those with strong gung ho feelings. Fort Myer is a nice little stop Well, okay, not so small. It is a most historical Army base. Here there are more than just soldiers marching around. Here you will find Brucker Hall where the Army's finest orchestra is based. You will find the Army horses you often enjoy in the many... More

My husband of 30 years still critique's how a flag is folded! Wonderful base rich with history, from the Civil War... More

It is squeaky clean and reflecting the solemnity of its mission from the moment you enter the gates. It honors our fallen!

This is a very small US Army post near DC. The architecture takes you back over 100 years. It is one of the best spots to see fireworks on 4th of July.

Got a tour of the stables that where the horses that are used at Arlington cemetery are kept. To get a tour you would need to know someone in the US Military who could set it up for you. The gentleman who gave the tour obviously cared a great deal about his work and loved what he did. It was... More

As a military base, it is highly regarded by Active... More

For those with current military or DoD ID and visiting the area, consider stopping by. A very nice post, with a good exchange, commissary and gas station. You can park on post, and walk through the Cemetery. If open, the caisson platoon allows you to visit with the horses, good, cheap family fun.
