A beautiful setting for the last resting place for many of America's veterans. The keepers do a great job of maintaining the grass in a desert environment. The only oddity (and not a good one) is that it is the only National Cemetery in the country where a section does not allow the standard upright, white marble grave markers we... More

This is a guge cemetery and if cemetery;s can be described as impressive this one is. It sits on the side of a number of slopes alongside the highway and is dotted with many white crosses. Worth a visit .

We first noticed this cemetery when driving to our hotel - it's huge! The white headstones stretch out forever, really reminding you of the sacrifice of our military men and women. This is a beautiful and well maintained cemetery, basically in the heart of Santa Fe.

I periodically make a stop at the Santa Fe National Cemetery to pay my respects to my friend and mentor who served with distinction with the United States Marines during World War II. He was among the troops who stormed Imo Jima. I am grateful for the sacrifices he made to protect our liberties and to the many contributions he... More

This is a remarkable place. For genealogists, it is a treasure trove of history that is easily accessible with their computerized system. You can find any gravesite with ease. The grounds themselves are well maintained. It is a glorious place to remember the sacrifice of all those that are buried there. It is an honor to be there.

Go every year to place something on the grave of an uncle who died in WWII. Though he died before I was born, I love going to leave a token of my appreciation for his sacrifice for our freedom.

Wasn't sure what to expect, but went into the office and they had a very informative handout, that pointed out many significant grave sites that you could visit.

Large national cemetery next to an old cemetery. Has lots of trees and grass, just quiet and peaceful. My husband will be laid to rest here when he goes. My uncle and his father are there.

Impressive and well maintained cemetery. Much larger than I anticipated. The white crosses lined up reminds me of Arlington. If you have the time, it's worth a stop.

This was on my to do list. Fortunately, it was very near where we stayed while in Santa Fe. I expected older grave sites. Perhaps I did not venture far enough. That was a bit disappointing for me.
