Henderson, Nev. – The City of Henderson will honor its heroes with banners bearing the name, rank and image of an active military serviceperson with ties to the community.
Applications are now being accepted for the Military Recognition Banner Program, which honors the brave men and women currently serving in the United States Armed Forces. The street banners will be displayed starting around Veterans Day. The application deadline is October 1.
“This is our way of honoring those who put themselves in harm’s way to protect our country,’’ said Mayor Andy Hafen. “We want those brave members of our community serving our country to know how proud we are of them and how much we support them.”
Henderson residents, businesses and organizations may nominate an honoree and sponsor their street banner for a $150 banner printing cost. The honoree must be a Henderson resident or the immediate family member of a Henderson resident, and must be an active duty member in good standing. There is a limit of one banner per serviceperson.
The street banners will be installed around the Veterans Day holiday and displayed for a year. Once the banners are removed following the display period, the serviceperson will be honored at a ceremony hosted by the City of Henderson.
Nomination forms are available from the Community Development and Services Department and can be requested by phone at 702-267-1500 or online at cityofhenderson.com/community_development.
An official color military photo of the honoree in their formal military dress uniform in a high-resolution (300 dpi) jpeg file format on disc or a 5” x 7” or larger original photograph must accompany the form and printing payment.
