Let us not forget
The Military Banner Tribute Program indexes the applicant's military history to the web's related military threads. The banners themselves are but a small part of the intent of the program. Families often lose their pictures due to fires, floods, moving or misplacement. Having their pictures and the information stored and indexed online eliminates this common problem.
Their military background and the service they provided will stay online forever.
We'd like to Thank everyone involved in this program for their support in recording their families' military information for today and for generations of the future.

Family of veterans are given the opportunity to purchase one of these banners through TroopBanners.com/Guymon. A displayable banner to be hung up and down main several times a year and a yard banner for the family to keep at home will be sent by the company.

Legion members include Jim Norris and Chet Krone, who can be contacted for more information. Texas County Boy Scouts were also on site to salute and honor the flag and service of Cpt. Darden. Banners can be purchased to honor fallen, deceased and living veterans. (Staff photos/April Coble)
