Some of the best musicians in the world are stationed here and the government won't even fix the ceiling over their stage. The bands have to play on the floor in front of the stage. Due to traffic we were late getting to the main gate but the guards were very professional and got us through in good time. The... More

This was a planned appointment, but I believe you can stop in any time? If not, check out an open house. It's a hive of activity all hours of the day, but we were welcomed and shown around by a couple young Sgt's who were very knowledgable and friendly.

Needed to handle some business requiring being on base. Everything was as it should be, and I was in and out in no time.

We attended the US Army Band concert at Conmy Hall at Fort Myer. It was outstanding. Happily, it was televised and remains available. The whole base is a fascinating place. Sure, security is obviously very tight and patience is needed to get through it, but it's well worth it. Our nation's security is in good hands if Fort Myer is... More

Ft Myer is a very traditional Army post. The post is smaller than most post but the Old Guard, the soldiers of Arlington Cemetery and the Tomb of the unknown soldiers. I really loved the old buildings and the near the entrance of the cemetery.

The guards at the gate were very courteous and professional in their inspections and questions. I'm proud to have these men serve in our armed forces! The funeral mass at the Old Post Chapel was lovely and in a very beautiful setting.

A small post dedicated to supporting the Old Guard, Soldiers of the 3rd Infantry who provide ceremonial duty in Washington, DC. You'll need a military ID to get on base. There is a nice exchange, gas station and commissary. If you are military, this is a good parking spot from which to visit Arlington National Cemetery. Park by the old... More

Was at Ft. Meyers for some training with the Old Guard and these guys were very accommodating and just fun to be around. They take their job very serious and are the best in the business at the job they do.

If you have a military officer friend, get an invitation to Sunday brunch at the Ft. Meyer Officers Club. It's like stepping back in history to the 1950s and 60s. Base itself is not too interesting except when there is an open house or some other kind of activity.

Recently attended a wedding here at the Old Post Chapel. Security was tight, we had to give ID info with the wedding response and all ID's were checked before being granted admittance. Beautiful venue for a wedding. Groom was a marine which gave them access. So glad to have had the opportunity to attend.
