American Legion Post 49 Promotes Blue Star Banner Program
by Jim Olson
The American Legion is rekindling the tradition of providing banners to families in communities across the country. Locally Post 49 is implementing the program by making card stock versions available free of charge. Banners can be displayed in the front windows of families who have loved ones serving in the armed forces including activated members of the National Guard and Reserves. The family member could be a son, daughter, brother, sister, cousin, husband, wife, grandchild, etc. By displaying a banner in a front window it shows pride for a loved one serving in the military.
If you have a loved one in the service and would like to obtain a banner or learn more about the Blue Star Banner program please call American Legion Post 49 Commander Joe Foruria at 365-7133 or Post Adjutant Jim Olson at 365-7738.
