Active service members and veterans are being remembered in Occoquan during the next few months.
County residents and visitors will see 30 patriotic signs when they walk through Occoquan.
The custom-designed banners contain a photo, name, military branch, and important decorations of a service member, according to a release.
They are displayed for the annual Military Tribute Banner Program, which is managed by the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 7916.
“The Military Tribute Banner Program is designed to help our communities never forget the brave men and women who have served and those serving our nation today,” a release stated.
A sponsorship program helps fund the Military Tribute Banner Program.
Families, community members, and businesses can sponsor signs and choose a veteran or active service member they would like to honor.
“These banners honor those serving, and those who have served and sacrificed in defense of our nation,” VFW Post 7916 Commander Jeff Lett said in a release.
Sponsoring families can keep the sign after it’s displayed. They will be mounted through Veterans Day.
