For non-Department of Defense (DOD) individuals, a visitor pass must be obtained from the Fort Bragg Visitor Control Center at the All-American entrance. It is best to check gate information prior to arriving and leaving base. Getting the physical address to the location is helpful when using GPS units – please be aware that not all navigational systems take into account gate closures.
While visiting Pope, some interesting sites include:
* An air park located near the intersection of Reilly Road and Sidewinder Street with four aircraft on display, including a C-47 Skytrain, C-123 Provider, C-119 Packet, and C-130 Hercules – all of them are part of Pope’s history. Flags from all 50 United States surround the park and fly in the order of statehood.
* Across the street from the air park are several monuments and memorials honoring airmen past, present, and future – including a statue honoring our namesake, Lt. Harley H. Pope.
* Several Pope archives are on display in the lobby of building 309 of the Air Mobility Operations Group (259 Maynard Street) – while there, be sure to sign the guest book!
* There are also several museums on Ft. Bragg open to the public pertaining to the Army.
