The 5th Annual Welcome Home Veterans Celebration, presented by AARP and Visit Clarksville, in partnership with the Montgomery County Veterans Coalition, is asking that you come be a part of this historic day and help us cheer for them as they make their way through the hangar doors.

Due to the overwhelming attendance of similar events at other military installations, we are asking people to register in advance for event officials to have a more accurate idea of the potential crowd.

Fort Campbell is a restricted access post. Guards at the gates conduct a 100% identification card check of all vehicle operators/passengers and pedestrians entering the installation. In order to be a part of the homecoming celebration on Fort Campbell, those wishing to attend will need to allow up to two hours to access post.

Visitors without a valid DoD Identification card will be required to stop at the Visitor Center at Gate 4 (T.C. Freeman Gate) or Gate 7, show proper identification, vehicle insurance and vehicle registration to obtain an access pass.
