Military street banner program returns to San Bernardino

Military street banner program returns to San Bernardino

Are you currently serving in the armed forces or know someone who is? Then the City of San Bernardino would like to hear from you.

San Bernardino’s Military Street Banner Program honors hometown heroes with banners installed on streetlights near the civic plaza, and then spreading throughout the city as space is needed.

“There is no amount of thanks that we can give San Bernardino’s military men and women to match our appreciation for their service to our country and community,” said Parks and Recreation Director Lydie Gutfeld in a statement. “This recognition lets everyone know who among us has made the commitment to serve.”

The program is not just for active duty, reservists and veterans who reside in San Bernardino will also be honored with banners. In addition, special Gold Star banners will be produced in memory of service members who died while serving.

Service members or their families must submit an application along with Verification of Military Status (DD-214) and a color 5×7 image of the service person. An online application is available at City of San Bernardino – Military Banner Program Application (sbcity.org) There is no cost to participate in the program.

All military street banner participants or living family members will be invited to a City Council meeting as part of a formal presentation and recognition by the Mayor and Council.

Funding for this program is being provided by sponsorships, community donations, and city funds. For more information, contact the City of San Bernardino Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department at 909-384-5233.
