FORT DRUM, NY — Fort Drum will open cemeteries for visitation on Memorial Day, Monday, May 31. There are 13 cemeteries located on the installation, and 10 of those are accessible without entering the Fort Drum cantonment area.
Community members wishing to visit the cemeteries located on Fort Drum’s ranges can do so anytime between 8 a.m. and sunset on Memorial Day and do not need to stop at Range Control to obtain a vehicle pass for that day.
The three cemeteries within the gates – Cooper Cemetery, Quaker Cemetery and the gravesite at LeRay Mansion – require a pass for visitors to enter the installation. Individuals may obtain a pass inside the Visitor Control Center, located at the Lt. Gen. Paul Cerjan Gate, after completing a quick background check.
