(Content Source: The Lebanon Reporter) The James Hill Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) has partnered with the City of Lebanon to offer military banners honoring veterans and active military individuals.
Banners will hang on light poles in a prominent location in the city. To be eligible, an individual must have served, have been honorably discharged, or must be currently serving in the United States armed forces. The individual may be living or deceased. This program honors all, whether they served in time of conflict or peace.
The vinyl banners will depict the individual on both sides and will be displayed May 2022 to May 2023. When the banner is removed, it will be given to the purchaser. If the individual died in the line of duty, a gold star will be placed on the banner. If they served in peace time, area of conflict on the banner will be blank. If the individual served during more than one conflict, all will be listed on the banner.
“This program has been extraordinarily popular in other Indiana communities, so we are excited that Mayor (Matthew) Gentry was supportive of this project,” Jane Lee, program coordinator, said. “Those honored do not need to have lived in Lebanon. We ask only that they have a connection to Boone County.”
Banner orders are taken on a first-come, first-served basis, with approved photo (in uniform) and payment. The deadline for submission is Dec.15.
To purchase a banner for $115 or for more information, contact Lee by calling 317-413-9973 or emailing to [email protected].
