TO BE HONORED IN NEW EXHIBIT
Monterey Depot Museum, located in downtown Monterey, Tenn. is beginning a project to honor Monterey-area military veterans
in a permanent exhibit.
“Veterans of the area have served to keep our country free,”
Ken Hall, Monterey Cultural Administrator, said. “They came back to the area to lead productive lives, raise their families
and become leaders. Many never left the battlefield. They’re still many active duty servicemen and servicewomen from
our community on the frontlines of freedom, today.”
The museum already features some about area veterans, but they plan to do much more. Plans are
to collect photos of the service members from the Civil War through the current day. Veteran’s photos will be placed
in a digital frame and also a flip binder in the museum. Any supporting documentation will be placed in a file for the veteran
for visitors to view upon request.
Eligibility: Any HONORABLY Discharged Veteran or Active Military Service
Member who has ever lived in the Monterey area (including Crawford, Wilder, Hanging Limb, Dry Hollow, Calfkiller, Clarkrange,
Cumberland Cove, Sand Springs, Shady Grove, Mill Creek, etc.), from any period of history.
What We Need: Two 8 x 10 (or 8.5 x 11) photos (military
portraits if available); copies of any supporting documentation (DD214, newspaper clippings, etc.)
Cost: There is no cost. However, donations are always appreciated
and can be mailed to:Monterey Depot Museum1 East Depot StreetMonterey, TN 38574 To pick up an application or for more information, contact Ken Hall at 931-839-2111; or download a form at
