This fort is located in Arlington, VA and is the home of the Army guards of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers. You must show identification to enter the fort. It is a well guarded fort since 911 and you must be respectful while visiting.

I was stationed at Ft. Myer in the mid 90's. It is a beautiful base with a lot of history. Security is tight so you just can't drive in. We were able to see the regimental ceremony and monument dedication. Everyone was friendly and professional.

The Old Guard gave a wonderful tour of the caisson barn and history of the unit. We got to see them make a shoe a horse as well. Don't let the paperwork of getting on base intimidate or put you off. Everyone was very helpful....More

My father was stationed at the Pentagon and we lived on Ft. Myer. We lived there while I was 8-10 years old. Even back then this was a "spic-and-span" base. To even get into the movie theater I had to have on a shirt, pants,...More

We have military base access and were able to drive on the base with no problem. I don’t know how this works for civilians without access. We found the stables and started to tour on our own. We entered through a side door. After a...More

We attended a wedding reception there, so we had reservations. We filled out a form for a background check prior to going, and then we just needed one photo ID to verify who we were when we went in.
