A garden of remembrance is to be built at the former RAF base at Lyneham in Wiltshire.
The Ministry of Defence says it will reflect the role played by the base in repatriating personnel from overseas operations, including Afghanistan and Iraq.
The garden will be open to the public.
It follows protests from grieving relatives who are angry that a private chapel of rest on the base is to be demolished to make way for redevelopment.
A vigil by people who lost relatives in Afghanistan is planned for Sunday.
