Military Banner Program

      Where will the banners be hung?

Currently, the banners are hanging on Foothill Blvd., San Dimas Ave., and Covina Blvd.

      When will the banners be hung?

San Dimas City Councilmembers graciously offered City staff to hang the banners, and tentatively scheduled them for the first week of each month.

      How long will the banners remain hanging?

They will remain until the serviceperson is discharged or until the permanent memorial is erected.

The banner will be given to the serviceperson’s family.

     My child is currently serving in the Armed Forces but is
     stationed in the United States.  Does he/she still qualify?

Yes.  Once an individual has completed Basic Training, and is on Active Duty, he/she becomes eligible.

     What if my child is currently serving overseas and I don't
     have a copy of his/her military ID?

Please go ahead and submit the application.  Ask your son or daughter to mail you a copy and forward it to us when you can.

The proposed location is on the corner of San Dimas Ave. and W. Commercial St., just south of the Park and Ride lot behind Goodyear (see Monument page).

We are looking for in-kind contributions from local businesses – i.e., architects, contractors, electricians, landscapers, etc.
