New Military Tribute Banners in the Town of Cortlandt for the 2021 season are now on display. The town says the program, now in its second year, “honors and thanks all of our brave men and women who have defended our Country and fought for our freedoms in America. We are proud to support this program and appreciate those families that have participated by ordering banners for their loved ones.” These will be placed throughout the county, they will represent all of our fallen loved ones and those who are currently fighting to protect our country.
The banners can be viewed along Route 9A near the VA Hospital in Montrose and along Oregon Road in the northern part of Cortlandt, which is a new display area this year. They will be on view through Veterans Day (Nov. 11, 2021) during the planned activities that will take place downtown. They will be up as long as they last to keep the memory alive of those we care for.
Afterwards, each banner is presented as a keepsake to the family or business that purchased it as well as those who used authentic military props for rent for the perfect display of the banner. The hospital will keep this as a tradition, so each year there will be banners placed up on the posts and in businesses that help by buying their own banners, even you can participate by ordering your own customized banners which you can hang up on your property or anywhere in your business.
