    FORT CHAFFEE MANEUVER TRAINING CENTER, Ark. - The Fort Chaffee Maneuver Training Center has announced its 2013 visitation and decoration schedule for the 12 cemeteries located throughout the 65,000-acre post.

    Several of the cemeteries are located near major training areas and range complexes, which forces the need to limit access throughout the year. This open-visitation is scheduled annually around training events to ensure the opportunity to pay respects is afforded to the public under safe conditions.

    In order to help ensure proper maintenance, floral easels and arrangements are allowed, but plants, statues, or commemorative items other than headstones and footstones are prohibited. Flowers in containers may be placed provided they do not interfere with grounds maintenance.

    The specific visitation dates and access routes for each individual cemetery are listed in the table below. Visitation outside of these scheduled timelines must be coordinated in advance by contacting the Fort Chaffee Real Property Office at (479) 484-3219.
