2024 U.S. Military Banner Program Application Guidelines


The City of Milton is proud to establish the first year of the U.S. Military Banner program. The U.S. Military Banner Program is a tribute created for the Milton community to recognize veterans who have served our country in the United States Armed Forces. This program is a way to publicly honor Veterans that have served and those who are actively serving in any branch of the military. This effort is aimed at increasing public awareness of our citizens who have served in the military, and to show our appreciation and respect for their service.

 

Although we hope this program will be active and sustainable for many years to come, for our first year we will be capping orders at 28 banners to help ensure a manageable framework. Orders are on a first-come-first-served basis and will be accepted through February 15, 2024, or as soon as the order cap is filled, whichever comes first. The City will accept the first 28 applications received that are fully paid and meet all the application requirements, original photo (can be returned), OD214 or current Military ID card photocopy (front and backside), and a check or money order for $125.00 made payable to the City of Milton. Applications can be picked up at Milton City Hall or on the City's website, cityofmiltonwv.com and must be returned to the City of Milton, c/o Military Banner Program, 1139 Smith Street, Milton, WV 25541.

 

Individual banners are 24" X 36" and can be purchased for $125.00. They will be displayed in the City of Milton from May to November for two (2) years (2024 and 2025), to both celebrate and remind the community of their dedication to our country. The City of Milton will provide the street pole banner brackets to hang the banners. Retired banners may be picked up by the sponsor November 27 - December11, 2025, at Milton City Hall during normal business hours. If your banner is not picked up between the allotted time, your banner will become the property of the City of Milton and may no longer be available to you.


Locations for displaying the banners will be determined by the City of Milton. However, where possible the City of Milton will try to accommodate requests for banner placement on a first come first served basis.

Eligibility


The individual must have served in any of the following branches of the US Armed Forces (Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, National Guard/Reserves or Space Forces) and must also meet one of the following conditions:

•       Currently be active service member or,

•       Be an honorably discharged veteran, POW, KIA or MIA.

  

The City of Milton is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged banners.
