Cemetery Overview
The Cemetery contains six marked graves and one unmarked grave depression. Five of the marked graves in the cemetery belong to German POWs originally held at Camp Campbell during WWII; the sixth marked grave belongs to an African-American civilian named William Dennis (1823-1899). The Army originally established a cemetery specifically for the interment of POWs near the present-day location of the Family Resource Center on Fort Campbell. That cemetery was moved to its current location in 1946.  


One Cemetery Responsible Official from the Fort Campbell, KY Directorate of Public Works office provides oversight and administrative support for all cemetery operations. Cemetery grounds maintenance is cared for by the Fort Campbell Directorate of Public Works office. The Army cemetery falls underneath the responsibility of the Fort Campbell Garrison Command and U.S. Army's Installation Management Command (IMCOM).
