Although some local groups have access, like a Fife and Drum Corps, and you can plan a funeral and a wake for a military relative here, most of this base are out of bounds for civilians. The base itself has a rather small Post Exchange,...More

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

I visited this base a few years ago with a brother-in-law and we were able to tour the horse barns and visit with the 3rd Infantry. I was awed by your base. I am now bringing my own family to DC over spring break. My husband was on the Mpls PD color guard for 25 years and I KNOW he would love to take a tour. Do you allow civilians to take tours of your base?
