Directions to Cemetery

Parking this year will again be OUTSIDE of the Cemetery on the Davis Highway. Unfortunately, some guests last year missed the Ceremony because of the distance they had to walk. Please arrive extra early to give yourself time to get onto the Base, park and walk to the Cemetery Flagpole before the Ceremony starts!

Those attending the Ceremony should enter through the Richardson Gate, proceed to the SECOND Traffic Circle and take the first exit (to the right) onto 6th Street. Follow 6th to the end and turn right onto the Davis Highway. Follow Davis Highway approximately 9/10 of a mile. The Cemetery is on the Left. You will be directed where to park by Volunteers.

For those without a Valid Base Access ID:

The 673d Security Forces Squadron will operate a dedicated preregistration call-in number on December 13th, 14th and 15th to simplify access to the Base for this Ceremony. THIS IS NOT THE SAME AS REGISTERING ON THE WAA WEBSITE AS A VOLUNTEER.

Registration by phone with Base Security will allow event attendees to enter through the Richardson Gate without having to stop at the Visitor Control Center. Those registering must provide the following personal information for a criminal background check:

Full name, Date of Birth, Driver's License Number or state issued ID, and issuing State

Callers will be told during the call if they passed the background check. Those who pass will be added to a list of Registered Patrons posted at the Richardson Gate. On Event Day, Registered Patrons can show their ID at the Richardson Gate to be compared to this list for access to the base. Please be courteous and patient with members of the Base Security Force. They’re Heroes too!


a) Have a Valid Base Access ID, or
b) Be on the Registered Patrons List or
c) Be Under the Age of 16

NOTE: Preregistration is for access directly to and from the National Cemetery.  Persons found outside of those areas may be charged with trespassing.

Parking Instructions

We have a another record number of volunteers this year!

Unfortunately, parking on the Cemetery Grounds must be limited to the Members of the Ceremony, News Media and Event Staff. All others will be asked to park on the Davis Highway, which will be closed for your safety between the Cemetery Entrance and Ruff Road. Volunteers will direct you where to park when you arrive.

Vehicles with elderly or disabled guests will be admitted to the Cemetery for drop off only, and will be asked to exit the Cemetery Grounds after dropping off their guests. They are then welcome to park on the Davis Highway near the Cemetery.
