VISITING HOURS. The Schofield Barracks Cemetery is open to visitors every day of the year during daylight hours.
BURIAL HOURS. The Schofield Barracks Cemetery is open for burial services Monday through Friday, 9:00-11 :00 a.m. and 12:00-2:00 p.m. Vaults are not provided.
GRAVE LOCATION. The grave location is to assist you in locating the grave of your loved one. A map of the cemetery showing the site and roster of those interred is located in the pavilion at the entrance to the cemetery.
GRAVE MARKER. A temporary marker is used to mark the grave following the interment. A permanent marker will be furnished by the Government. Every effort is made to have the grave marker delivered within 120 days of the interment. Markers are placed as soon as weather and work schedules permit.
BURIAL OF A SURVIVING SPOUSE. A non-veteran spouse of a deceased veteran who remarries is not eligible for burial in the Post Cemetery. Also, a divorced spouse or a spouse whose marriage to the veteran has been armulled in not eligible for burial.
GROUNDS MAINTENANCE. Immediately after each interment, the grave is filled, leveled, and seeded. Until growing conditions are favorable and turf has been established, burial areas may be substandard in appearance because the soil continues to sink after a burial, a new grave requires repeated renovation. After the grave has stabilized, the overall appearance will improve. The cemetery staff requests your understanding. Matters which appear to need immediate, corrective action should be reported to the cemetery office. NOTE: THE PERSONAL MAINTENANCE OF GRAVESITES BY VISITORS (CUTTING GRASS, TRENCHING AROUND GRAVES AND MARKERS, WATERING WITH THEIR OWN HOSE, PAINTING MARKERS, ETC.) IS NOT AUTHORIZED. PLEASE ALLOW CEMETERY PERSONNEL THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR GROUNDS MAINTENANCE.
FLAGS. The United States Flag is flown over the Post Cemetery every day during the hours of cemetery operation. The flag is flown at half staff during interment services and wreath-laying ceremonies. All graves are decorated for Memorial Day by Boy/Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts with small United States Flags.
