TRAVEL LE ADER T H E GROUP C L A R KSV I L L E ' S H O M E C O M I N G C larksville, a town 50 miles north- west of Nashville, is as patriotic a destination as you'll ever visit. As the gateway to Fort Camp- bell, home of the Army's famous 101st Airborne Division, Clarksville is full of service members and the people who support them. And for one weekend each year in September, the community comes together to thank and celebrate those who have served defending America. The Welcome Home Veterans celebration takes place over National POW/MIA Remem- brance Day and features three days of special events to honor all veterans of the U.S. armed forces. The festivities this year will take place September 13-16. Welcome Home Veterans gets underway on Thursday evening with a POW/MIA remem- brance ceremony. The next day will bring a luncheon and a speech by a former prisoner of war, as well as entertainment that will feature a 1967 Bob Hope "Tribute to the Troops." And the highlight of the weekend will come on Saturday afternoon, when downtown Clarksville hosts a Welcome Home parade and concert. Groups get reserved seating at the parade, and mem- bers of the groups who are veterans can march in the parade. Courtesy Clarksville-Montgomery Co.
