The Montgomery County Commission on Veteran Affairs will honor county uniformed service members and veterans with a virtual tribute during the Memorial Day Weekend. The Fallen Hometown Heroes website honors veterans who were killed in service to our country since World War I. The website includes photos and military histories of those who were either originally from the county or who lived in the county at some time.

The Commission is asking for those with stories of additional service members to submit them online. Anyone with a friend or family member of a Veteran killed in action can share their story by completing an online form.

The following information is requested:

  • Service member’s or veteran’s name.
  • Name of person submitting information and relationship to the individual.
  • Branch of service and rank.
  • Years of service.
  • Era served (WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf War, Global War on Terror or peacetime/other).
  • A brief narrative of their service.
  • Connection to Montgomery County (where the individual lived, grew up, attended high school or college/university, etc.).
  • Photos (preferably one during their service and one other).

The online Google form can be accessed here and questions can be sent to
