WARSAW — Kosciusko Youth Leadership Academy member Elizabeth Stone brings the ‘Warsaw Salutes You Military Banner Recognition Program’ to Market Street.
Stone established her KYLA project to honor local military service personnel. Inspired by her older brother’s commissioning into the United States Navy, Stone hopes to recognize area men and women who served in the armed forces.
The 17” x 40” double-sided, vinyl banner will display the service member’s photo, rank and era of service. To qualify, the honoree must have resided in the greater Warsaw area, served or are currently serving in the United States Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard or National Guard.
The banners will be displayed on lamp posts along the East Market Street corridor beginning mid-November.
To purchase a banner, an application fee of $65 must be paid at the time of the application. Sponsorship forms may be obtained by emailing [email protected] For further details, follow @warsawsalutesyou on Facebook and Instagram. Banners are sold on a first come first served basis. Deadline for the application is Oct. 28.
