We have a number of relatives buried in the National Cemetery and visit often. The staff keeps this cemetery in great condition. There is never any trash or anything out of order. The directory and markings are easy to use and find your loved ones. We have also attended a burial here and it was nicely organized and very respectful... More

We stumbled upon this site and glad that we did. We were in awe of the vast number of men and women at this location that have served our country.

I am from Canada, and we do not glamorize our military the way our US neighbours do, yet I was in awe by the size, history and significance of this cemetery. If you want to take photographs, go to see the office first, as they have strict rules. While I only took a few photos, it is a place to... More

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.
