Local veterans and active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces will be honored again this year by the city of Dublin, which displays military banners on local streets as part of an annual program created in 2018.
From Memorial Day until Veterans Day 2020, the banners will be displayed along Dougherty Road in Dublin. Details about the honoree, including their photo, name, rank, branch and whether they are active duty or a veteran, will be featured on the banners -- which will then be presented to the honoree or sponsor when the exhibition period ends.
To qualify for the military banner program, the honoree must be an active duty member or honorably discharged veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces, be a current Dublin resident or have an immediate family member (spouse, parent, sibling, child or grandchild) who resides there, or be a former Dublin resident with a “demonstrated long term, positive impact on the Dublin community,” subject to approval by the city.
The deadline to apply is March 25; the online application form is available at https://dublin.ca.gov/FormCenter/City-Manager-Office-Events-7/Sponsor-a-2020-Military-Honoree-Banner-87.
