Fort Hood is allowing families of those buried in cemeteries in live-fire areas between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Sunday.

Families must call ahead to range operations at 254-287-3130/3321 before accessing the area.

Range guides will assist families and monitor cemetery visits to ensure visitors have left the live-fire area by 7 p.m. Sunday, Fort Hood officials said in a news release.

Signs will guide visitors to the cemeteries, which can be accessed via East Range Road, Hubbard Road, West Range Road or Owl Creek Road.

A vehicle pass is not required for the cemetery visits unless accessing the installation through the gates. Non-DoD ID card holders must obtain a pass from the visitors center located on T.J. Mills Boulevard prior to getting on post, Fort Hood officials said.
