*You missed the 2023 event; next year’s event is in the works. It will most likely be in October 2024*
The 2023 Project was our eleventh project at Arlington National Cemetery. The project details were the removal of approximately 185′ 6′ Chainlink which was replaced with 8′ ornamental aluminum donated by Barrette Outdoor Living.
Every year, we restore fence at Arlington National Cemetery.
People from all over the US visit Arlington National Cemetery to honor our servicemen who gave their all to defend our great nation. NAFCA is proud to sponsor this service project. We organize materials and bring people like you together to be a part of this annual restoration of the fence around the cemetery’s Visitor’s Center.

Our next service project at Arlington National Cemetery will take place in October 2024. Additionally, we are including a Business Operations Training the day before this year’s event. Follow us on Facebook to get updates as the plans for this service project come together. Read more below or contact us to get involved!

Members and non-members are encouraged to attend. Participants will have the opportunity to serve by helping to remove old, worn fencing, and installing new ornamental aluminum fence near the entrance to the Visitor’s Center.
If you can’t make it, but still want to be a part and help out, you can send a donation to help cover the costs of feeding the crew and other expenses.

Throughout the day, there will be opportunities to view the Iwo Jima Memorial and the Pentagon Memorial, and attendees are encouraged to stay into the weekend to take advantage of the many opportunities for sightseeing and connecting with our nation’s storied past.
We look forward to seeing you there!
