Each banner will list the name of the honoree and the branch of the military in which the honoree serves.
The banners are displayed May 2018 through mid-May 2019 for the 2018/19 program. View the 2018/2019 Banner Map (PDF) for a map showing names and locations of the Military Banners currently displayed.
