Clarkstown Launches Military Tribute Banner Program Across Town of Clarkstown
Clarkstown was the first town in New York to honor local Veterans through this program
(New City, NY) – Supervisor George Hoehmann announced the town-wide launch of the Military Tribute Banner Program for 2018. The Town of Clarkstown first launched the program in 2016 to honor our local veterans and those currently serving our nation in the United States Armed Forces.
Residents or businesses can sponsor a veteran or active duty service member with a military tribute banner. The banners will be displayed on the light posts in the various hamlet centers from Memorial Day to Veterans Day. The deadline to sponsor a banner is April 30, 2018.
“The banners are a small way we can acknowledge the sacrifice many of our neighbors have made serving our community and our Country,” said Supervisor George Hoehmann. “Our local veterans and active duty service members are our true heroes, and this program allows Clarkstown to proudly honor them all throughout the Town.”
Clarkstown was the first municipality in New York, and the entire north eastern United States, to implement the program. Each banner honors a veteran or active duty service member by displaying their photo, branch of service, and military service information. Local families and businesses can sponsor a banner which are given to the family or sponsor at the end of the display period.
“Thank you to all the families and businesses who joined us in honoring our local veterans,” said Supervisor Hoehmann. “I am so proud our program has grown to be the largest banner program on the east coast and am pleased that many of our neighboring towns and villages are starting their own similar programs,” said Supervisor Hoehmann.
