Due to security concerns of the Base, the Commanding Officer of NAS Pensacola has directed the following protocols for visitors participating in the Flag Placement for 2019:

       Protocols:

THIS YEAR A BY NAME ROSTER IS REQUIRED AS IT WAS IN 2016.  THEREFORE, YOU MUST REGISTER YOUR NAME AND DATE OF BIRTH AS WELL AS FOR ALL OF THOSE WHO WILL BE IN YOUR VEHICLE PARTICIPATING IN THE EVENT.

   a.   Visitors must enter NASP via the Main Gate and show a government issued identification card (Driver's License, Military I.D. Card etc.) to the Naval Security Force (NSF) sentry for access.

    b.  Proceed South on Duncan Ave; a NSF traffic control sentry will direct the visitors to turn West onto Taylor Road.

    c.  Proceed West on Taylor Road; a NSF Traffic Control sentry will direct the visitors either north (go South to Committal Shelter B) or south on John H. Towers Road.

    d.  Barricades will be posted at the entrance of the Barrancas National Cemetery, Building 3561 and the Barrancas National Cemetery Annex direction vehicular traffic.

    e.  The NSF traffic control sentries will remain in place during the event and until the visitor exit the way they enter the installation.

    f.  The NSF Watch Commander will ensure all visitors are off the installation prior to securing the NSF traffic control sentries.

Who: Your Troop, Your Pack, parents, friends, and family.

How:  Flags are to be placed 12 inches (one foot) in front of the headstones and markers.  The front of the headstone is marked with the religious emblems along with the name of the decedent.  The back of the headstone has the section and grave number.

Bring:   Gloves, PVC Ts (to help push in the flags), water, sun screen, snacks (must clean up after yourself, leave no trace), and rain gear.

Cemetery Etiquette:  Do not walk, stand or sit on Headstones and Grave Markers.  Remember, Barrancas National Cemetery is the final resting place for our military members and their family members and is hallowed ground.
