All pedestrian traffic will be required to enter Arlington National Cemetery at set access points: the cemetery's main entrance on Memorial Avenue, Ord & Weitzel Gate, and the Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall Old Post Chapel Gate. Before entering the cemetery from the main entrance, all pedestrians will be screened at the Welcome Center. There will be express screening lines for visitors who do not have bags. Those with disabilities will also have an express line for screening. All vehicle access will require presenting a valid government issued photo identification (driver's license, passport, etc.) when entering the cemetery and will be subject to random inspections.

This will be a solemn and special day for Norwich as we honor the service of our alumni and the thousands of other men and women laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery. We hope you can be there with us.
