1: What type of service are you thinking about?
Traditional Service: A service is held at the Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel or Community Center Chapel followed by a graveside service at the USAFA cemetery.

Graveside Service: Since most of our families travel from out of the local area, services are usually conducted in the hometown prior to coming to the Academy. Therefore, a graveside service is conducted at the USAFA Cemetery with no services held at the Cadet or Community Center Chapel.

Memorial Service: When remains are not interred in the USAFA Cemetery, a memorial service may still be conducted at the Cadet or Community Center Chapel.
