The Montgomery County Veterans Service Organization is hosting its annual Memorial Day Ceremony at 10 a.m., May 27, at Veterans Memorial Park, Clarksville.
City and county officials, as well as MCVSO staff will give remarks, with the keynote address given by LTC (Retired) Norman “Greg” Lane, US Army Reserve, who currently serves as the Battalion Executive Officer of Austin Peay State University’s ROTC. Musical selections will be presented by Stella McKnight and the 101st Airborne Division Band, with posting of the colors by the Montgomery Central High School JROTC. Area Veterans Service Organizations will conduct a wreath- laying ceremony.
Special tribute will be given as we honor the family of Sgt. Jacob Michael Schwallie, who was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2012, as his name is added to the Montgomery County War Memorial.
Veterans Memorial Park is located at 1300 Madison Street, at the rear of the Montgomery County Health Department, with parking available at Veterans Plaza. In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be held inside the William O. Beach Civic Hall, Veterans Plaza.
