Faces of Valor
Faces of Valor - Veterans of Montgomery County
How “Faces of Valor” came to be…
A project of the Kiwanis Club of Clarksville’s Memories of Service and Sacrifice Committee, the over 2600 entries of Volumes I through IV 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 are representative of the thousands who have served their country. Volume I 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 compiled Volume II in 2011, Volume III in 2013, and Volume IV in 2015.
This index of Volumes I through IV is arranged alphabetically and contains, in most cases, only a portion of the material from the four booklets. Biographical material was furnished by the veterans, their families, government archives, and genealogical sources. Questionnaires and other information submitted to create “Faces of Valor” are housed at the Montgomery County Archives. 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 now being solicited for Volume V with publication anticipated to be next year, 2017. Further information may be obtained by contacting Ron Smithfield at [email protected] Copies of the forms to be submitted are available at the Archives, the Clarksville office of the Veterans Service Organization, and the Kiwanis Club of Clarksville office. Copies of Volumes I through IV of “Faces of Valor” are available at the Customs House Museum, the County Mayor’s office at the Montgomery County Court House, the Montgomery County Historical Society, the Montgomery County Archives, and the Kiwanis Club of Clarksville office (931.320.1337).
