Northville banners honor servicemen

The City of Northville is participating in a national mission this year to honor and pay tribute to local U.S. Armed Forces veterans and active duty military personnel by lining the downtown streets with military tribute banners during the months of May and November.
The banners display a photo of the service person with their name, dates of service and branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. Banner honorees have served from the Civil War, World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.

The banners were installed in time for the 75th Anniversary V-E Day celebration on May 8,  and set for Memorial Day on May 25. They will be re-installed in November for Veterans Day.
The banner sponsorship program set-up by the Northville Chamber of Commerce is designed to help raise funds for various non-profits, veteran's organizations and to “never forget the brave men and women who have served and are serving our nation today.”
