Military Banner Program in Yelm Honors Those Who Served
From the NVN:
The City of Yelm’s Military Banner Program is a way to honor those who served in the United States Armed Forces.
The program, which was reintroduced after a brief hiatus, allows people to recognize their loved ones by purchasing a banner that will be displayed on light poles in the city. The banner will include the honoree’s name and the military branch they served in.
The banner, which costs $85, is open to all of those who are currently serving in the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, Navy or National Guard, as well as those who have retired or have been honorably discharged from any term of service.
The program is set to start in May, in time for Armed Forces Day.
The city will work with Dirty Deeds to put up the banners on light poles along Yelm Avenue, state Route 507 and Tahoma Boulevard. The city hopes the program will grow in the future.
Those interested in having a banner displayed can fill out a form online at yelmwa.gov/live/a_military_community.php.
