Banners of our Heroes

Mansfield celebrates and honors our servicemen & women

by Lauren Gooch – June 7, 2017

Each year in Mansfield, there is a Veteran’s Day service as part of the 4th of July celebration, which honors the Veterans in the Mansfield community who have served our country. To expand upon this, the Mansfield community has decided to feature banners on Main Street which honor our heroes. The banners display the hero’s name, picture, branch of service, era of service, and sponsor. Some of these banners are sponsored by their families, and others are sponsored by local businesses.

Originally, they had started with a goal of 50 banners in one year. Currently, they are approaching 300 banners. If you are looking to have a banner for you or a loved one who has served, please contact the Mansfield Chamber of Commerce at (570) 662-3442 or visit their website here. Banner books and DVD’s are also available for purchase by calling the Mansfield Chamber of Commerce.

We would like to especially thank all of the sponsors, local businesses, families, volunteers, and of course, those who have served to protect our country and our freedoms. God bless!
