Santa Fe National Cemetery Reviews & Ratings
Very nice cemetary. They take great care in honoring our loved ones.
As I understand it, this cemetery began with the casualties from the Civil War Battle of Glorieta Pass, but the older section predates this and is the final resting place of individuals such as Charles Bent who was NM's first (territorial) Governor killed in Taos (which is an interesting/tragic story related to relations of all of NM's major groups in the early days). As it is a National Ceremony, it is now filled with likely all sort of stories about the individuals making the ultimate sacrifice in service of their county, up to the present. The individuals who work there seem very cognizant and protective of those who are in a sense in their care for perpetuity. No one I know or am related to is buried there, that I know of, only a Medal of Honor recipient from my hometown. It does seem like a nice final resting spot, and like the individuals there are in good company.
Such a beautiful site to see all of the soldiers remembered. You can now search online for the sites of your loved ones so you can search on your smart phone. Came in handy to not have to search there. Though they do have a kiosk that you can use to look up at the entrance. People are always helpful.
They never have enough vases. The upper level isn't maintained as well as the lower level. Grass is yellow and almost dead in some areas. They throw flowers and memorials after being there a short while.
The Santa Fe National Cemetery is a sacred, hallowed, and beautiful place. My father who served during WWII and my brother who served during the Vietnam War are both buried there. It is the most peaceful and beautiful place in Santa Fe because of what it represents...a final resting place for the men and women who have served in the US military. The staff, as well as the volunteers, are so kind and compassionate. It is an honor and a comfort to have my loved ones laid to rest in this tranquil place that I love to return to year after year. May God bless them, keep them, and may God bless America.
