Registration for access to Fort Richardson National Cemetery

Greetings Alaska,

On behalf of JBER, we would like to thank all veterans and families for their sacrifice and dedication to the United States of America. We understand gaining base access to JBER to visit the Fort Richardson National Cemetery for Veterans Day can be frustrating and time-consuming.

In an effort to reduce or even eliminate wait times at the Visitor Control Center for access to the cemetery, the 673rd Security Forces Squadron's base-access section will have a dedicated call-in number for early registration from Nov. 8 through 10. Registration will allow registered individuals to enter JBER without having to stop at the Visitor Control Center.

Persons registering will have their criminal background checked for disqualifying information; upon successful screening, their names will be added to a list of authorized patrons at the Richardson Gate. Patrons 16 years of age and older will only show their ID to be compared to the list and will be granted access to the base. Patrons under the age of 16 do not require criminal vetting or a picture ID to gain access to JBER for this event.

To register, individuals must be U.S. citizens and provide their full name, state ID or driver's license number, and date of birth. The technician handling your call will inform you if you're cleared for entry or denied access at the time of the call.

You may experience long wait times during the phone call, depending on time of day, but registration will eliminate waiting at the VCC.  

NOTE: This registration is for access to and from Fort Richardson National Cemetery.  Persons found outside that area may be charged with trespassing.
