  • They have a kiosk which is good. It gave us the location of the grave but the map provided had no relation to the grave we were looking for. 
  • Our family attended a memorial service there. What a great tribute this is to our nations veterans! The staff were friendly, professional, and very respectful! 
  • Riverside national cemetery is 2nd only to Arlington. It is beautiful landscaped and well kept. Air Force honors are provided by the Blue Eagles Honor Guard out of Edwards AFB Ca. It is one of the bus...  read more »
  • Only National cemetery in the Inland Empire. My father is buried there. I drive a taxi, and 1 day I received a request from a female passenger to drive her there to visit her father's gravesite. On the way there, we discovered that there were certain similar things about our situations. For instance, both our dads were 63-years-old when they passed. Her dad's name is Steven as well as mine. The whole experience was strange as well as very humbling. I will remember that day for a long time coming.
  • Let me preface this by saying it is a very beautiful place, on the outside. On the inside, however, you'll find that the staff you may interact with are terribly rude. I am a delivery guy, I deliver flowers. Sometimes I deliver them to services, today was one of those days. I had two services to go to within 15 minuets of each other so naturally I went to the one that was supposed to be done first, the one at Riverside National. When i finally found the group for my delivery they were still talking to the employee who was guiding them so I unloaded my stand of flowers and walked over then patiently waited for them to be done. After they had finished up the employee walks over to me and before I can ask him if I was in the right place or if anyone would take these flowers, the man says "Get back in your car." just like that. After a slight pause he says that they don't know where the service will take place so i will have to wait and that if I didn't wait i wouldn't be delivering them, all this while the family just watched me no one taking the flowers no one lifted a finger. So I load up the car again and wait. And I wait. Finally they figure out where they are going and I follow them. Eventually we get to a small road that leads to what I thought would be a small parking area so I kept on trucking, boy was I wrong. Suddenly this caravan stops on this road and everyone gets out and parks. So I'm stuck with having to reverse out after the kind gentleman in front of me, who could see my visible anger and frustration, finally took the flowers off my hands. After I reverse out (a 1/4 mile reverse out) I start my way back out, and get lost. That's when I notice security following me. I thought to myself, "hey maybe they'll help me out" so I pull over and roll the window down and ask the lady if she could tell me how to get out and instead of answering my question she says something along the lines of "just pulled out of there and you drove on the grass didn't you." So clearly the man from before called the security to come and harass me because he thought so little of me that he assumed I would drive over graves to get out of there. After telling her no i reversed out cause I'm not a prick she told me how to leave and I got out. I missed the other funeral by an hour and a half. I will make sure no one i know comes to be laid to rest here.
  • My father is buried there and now recently my brother in law and this place is so beautiful place to put a family member to rest and peace I'd give this a million star if I could... God bless Ronald dale cowan and Bill Fraser and the staff there are very helpful to you and keep the place clean!!
  • Today I was greeted by a code enforcement lady (amanda) and was told my service dog wasn't allowed. She is named after my mother & always goes when I do. Amanda was rude, & disrespectful and needs to practice her people skills.i have 3 relatives buried there.
  • My father was a WWII combat vet in the Pacific. We interred him here with a color guard and it was awesome. Great followup in the preparation, and a very dignified and honorable ceremony. If I could give 6 stars I would, Riverside VA is wonderful
