A well kept and respectful last resting place.The access is fairly easy. The layout makes it easy to find the markers of all there.

Beautiful mountaintop views from this scenic spot. It's interesting to see grave markers that say "Indian Wars" in a place like Santa Fe. There's not a lot of signage to give history, so it will help to do some research or go during business hours to talk with someone about more information. It is worth driving through the adjacent cemetery as well for more variety.

As we were leaving Santa Fe to take the High Road to Taos, we saw the sign for the National Cemetery. We were honored to be able to stop. The day we were there they were holding a military funeral.

It was a beautiful sunny fall day. We first went to the visitor center to get some information & a map. 40,000 New Mexico veterans are buried here including 9 Medal of Honor recipients. The cemetery is situated on 79 acres. You may visit from sunrise to sunset. The grounds are beautiful and well kept.

There is a memorial to the Glorietta Pass Confederate Dead and a memorial to Women Who Served in the Navy among many other special memorials.

Of special note to us, was that David Westphall is buried here. He is a soldier that was killed in Vietnam. His parents Dr Victor & Jeanne Westphall started the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Angel Fire, NM. It was the first memorial to the soldiers of Vietnam.

This is a very quite place to reflect on the ones who have given the ultimate sacrifice for what we believe in. Reminded me somewhat of Arlington National Cemetery. This is a must see also for anyone visiting the area.

This cemetery reminded us of the Arlington National Cemetery near Washington, D.C. The rows and rows of small white crosses were so spiritual and so sobering. We were surprised to find such a treasure in Santa Fe.
