The backdrop of the majestic Box Springs Mountain peaks provides a peaceful and serene atmosphere for veterans and their families to come together at the final resting home of their loved one . The dramatic, meandering landscape features a central boulevard with memorial circles, lakes, indigenous-styled committal shelters, and a memorial amphitheater.

Riverside National Cemetery was established in 1976 through the transfer of 740 acres from March Air Force Base, which during World War II, was called the U.S. Army's Camp William G. Haan. In 1978, the Department of Veterans Affairs officially opened the Riverside National Cemetery on Veterans Day. The cemetery covers 921 acres, making it the third-largest cemetery managed by the National Cemetery Administration. The Riverside National Cemetery performs over 7,000 burials per year and is home of the Medal of Honor Memorial, one of four sites in the United States recognized by the US Congress as a National Medal of Honor Memorial Site dedicated to the internment of United States military personnel. The Memorial Honor Detail (MHD) is an all volunteer non-profit organization whose mission is to provide military honors at no charge for deceased veterans being buried at Riverside National Cemetery. In addition to the Department of Defense military funeral honors program, "Honoring Those Who Served," the Riverside National Cemetery Memorial Honor Detail (MHD) is generally available Monday through Friday to provide military funeral honors for veterans. MHD teams vary in size and scope, from folding and presenting the flag only, to full honors with a rifle salute and bugler. All military funeral honors performed by the MHD are provided at NO COST to the family.

The Riverside National Cemetery is open daily from 8:00 a.m. to sunset.
