Events and Ceremonies
Veterans Day Parade
Every year, the MCVSO organizes and hosts our community's Veterans Day Parade. Community and military leaders share their thoughts on this important day of remembrance, and scores of area clubs, community groups, military service organizations, high school bands, JROTC units, Fort Campbell soldiers and hundreds of spectators gather together to pay tribute to the men and women, past and present, who have served our country.
The MCVSO has held veterans outreach events at William O. Beach Civic Hall in Veterans Plaza, where representatives from veterans groups and federal, state, county and community agencies provide information and enrollment opportunities for veterans and other eligible beneficiaries. MCVSO staff also participate in a wide array of local veteran and employment outreach events hosted by other agencies in the Clarksville and Fort Campbell area throughout the year.
Join us for our annual Memorial Day Ceremony at Veterans Memorial Park, Madison Street. A host of veteran service organizations, musicians, city and county officials and Fort Campbell soldiers gather together with the public to remember and honor those who gave the ultimate sacrafice for their country. Special ceremonies such as the POW/Missing Man Table and Honors and the Laying of the Wreath are part of the morning's events.
Flag Day Ceremony
The MCVSO, in conjunction with VFW Post 4895, collects worn, damaged or otherwise unservicable U.S. flags and properly destroys them, by burning, during the annual Flag Day Ceremony on June 14 at the VFW Post, 1701 Haynes St., Clarksville. Damaged flags may be dropped off at our office between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
