My father was stationed at the Pentagon and we lived on Ft. Myer. We lived there while I was 8-10 years old. Even back then this was a "spic-and-span" base. To even get into the movie theater I had to have on a shirt, pants,...More

This is a little-known place available for anyone to rent -- not just those with military ties. It's a bit of a hassle to find your way there and you need photo ID to enter. (Everyone also had to pre-submit information for a background check.)...More

We attended the US Army Band concert at Conmy Hall at Fort Myer. It was outstanding. Happily, it was televised and remains available. The whole base is a fascinating place. Sure, security is obviously very tight and patience is needed to get through it, but...More

We attended a wedding reception there, so we had reservations. We filled out a form for a background check prior to going, and then we just needed one photo ID to verify who we were when we went in.
