Hometown Hero Banners Millsboro

The Major Nathaniel Mitchell Chapter (MNM) NSDAR is excited to announce they are branching their Hometown Hero Banner Program into Millsboro, Delaware. The Hometown Heroes Banner Program is a living tribute created in order for the community to recognize and honor individuals that serve or have served our country in the United States Armed Forces.

The MNM Hometown Heroes Banner program will include up to 36 Banners that will be displayed on light-poles lining the streets in Millsboro. The Major Nathaniel Mitchell Chapter NSDAR is thrilled to be working with the Town of Millsboro to honor veterans or active military in this way, and hope to have them in place by Memorial Day. The banners share the service person’s photograph, including their full name, branch of service, and the era of service.

Determination is by each Veteran or active-duty service member has or had a connection to Millsboro. Applications are currently being accepted and available at Millsboro City Hall, can be downloaded here  or found in the PDF attached to this article. There is no cost for the application, and donations are being accepted for the complete project as well.
