Faces of Valor

“Faces of Valor" – Veterans of Montgomery County

How “Faces of Valor” came to be…

A project of Kiwanis Club of Clarksville’s Memories of Service and Sacrifice Committee, the 804 entries of Volume One and Two document only a portion of Montgomery County veterans’ lives.

The 244 photographs of the original display were unveiled on 13 November 2004 in the restored Montgomery County Courthouse. Four eight-foot by eight-foot wall panels represent the thousands who have served their country. Volume One was printed in 2005 as a guide to this grouping of photographs. Because there is no more space available but wishing to honor additional veterans who live or have lived in Montgomery County, the Kiwanis Club printed Volume Two in 2011.

This index of Volumes One and Two is arranged alphabetically and contains, in mostcases, only a portion of the material from the two booklets. Biographical material forthe two volumes was furnished by the veterans, their families, government archives, and genealogical sources. Questionnaires and other information submittedto create “Faces of Valor” can be found at the Clarksville-Montgomery County PublicLibrary. Any omissions are regretted, but all who have worn the uniforms of the various services and defended our freedom are honored.

Biographical information and photos are solicited for Volume Three. Further information may be obtained by contacting Gerry Gilman at Copies of Volumes One and Two of “Faces of Valor” are available at the Customs House Museum, Montgomery County Court House, the Montgomery County Historical Society, and the Kiwanis Club of Clarksville Office (931.320.1337).
