City, County to lower flags for monthly recognition of fallen troops

Clarksville Mayor Johnny Piper and Montgomery County Mayor Carolyn Bowers will have all local government flags lowered to half-staff on the second Wednesday of every month in remembrance and honor of the Fort Campbell soldiers that have lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan. The day will coincide each month with the Eagle remembrance ceremony that is held at Fort Campbell.

This idea was presented to both Mayors’ by our local Military Affairs Committee as a way for our community to show our continued support for our soldiers and their families. Businesses and homeowners that have flagpoles are encouraged to also lower their flags to half-staff on the second Wednesday of each month starting on August 13th.
