Event Details

Monday, May 29: Memorial Day

On Memorial Day, we remember our U.S. military service members who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. In San Diego, you can visit several sites Monday to pay your respects. This includes:

Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery
8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Cabrillo Memorial Drive
Situated on the Fort Rosecrans Military reservation about 10 miles west of San Diego, Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery is typically closed on federal holidays – except for Memorial Day. At VA national cemeteries across the U.S. on Monday, the National Cemetery Administration will host special remembrance ceremonies with the help of communities, including at Fort Rosecrans. The ceremony is at 10 a.m. at the Rostrum. In addition to serving as the final resting place of many U.S. military service members, the site also houses several monuments and memorials. Fresh-cut flowers may be placed on graves and in the gravel areas around the Columbarium or on memorial walls and monuments at any time – not only on Memorial Day.

Miramar National Cemetery
8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., 5795 Nobel Dr.
This 313-acre national cemetery is located on Nobel Drive about 15 miles north of downtown San Diego, at the northwest corner of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. A special Memorial Day ceremony will be held here Sunday, May 28 in the flag pole assembly area at 1 p.m. Miramar National Cemetery is also typically closed on federal holidays, but will be open on Memorial Day. As at Fort Rosecrans, fresh-cut flowers may be placed on graves and gravel areas around the Columbarium or on memorial walls and monuments at any time.
