The Fort Knox Post Cemetery is the final resting place for Soldiers and their dependents. With over 800 gravesites, the historic cemetery includes war casualties, decorated veterans, and their loved ones. For $17.00 you can sponsor a wreath this December on National Wreaths Across America Day and help us remember and honor those interred there.

The Fort Knox Post Cemetery has a long history dating to the early years of the installation and has evolved while keeping its historic setting. In recent years it was the first Army post cemetery to meet the “National Shrine Standards” set by the Office of Army Cemeteries. U.S. Army Garrison Fort Knox hosts an annual ceremony on National Wreaths Across America Day in which wreaths are placed on gravesites there. Please help us remember and honor those interred by sponsoring a wreath, volunteering on Wreaths Day, and/or inviting your family and friends to attend with you. This event is a wonderful time to teach our children the value of freedom.

The Fort Knox Post Cemetery is quietly located along 701st Tank Battalion Road and can only be accessed by entering the installation. Attendance is not required to sponsor a wreath. Thanks to those that help make the National Wreaths Across America Day at the Fort Knox Post Cemetery a memorable event!

Directions to Cemetery

When you come in the main gate for Fort Knox you will immediately see the Golf Course to your left. This is where everyone is parking, please park there and we will direct you to the cemetery. Please come early as you will need to get a visitor pass at the Welcome center if you are not already registered on Fort Knox.

Parking Instructions

Due to the limited parking space at the cemetery we will be parking everyone at the Fort Knox Golf course parking lot which is only about a quarter mile from the cemetery so please park there and you will have a short walk to the cemetery, sorry for the inconvenience.
