The City of Desert Hot Springs is proud to announce that we are honoring our local heroes with a new veterans banner installation throughout downtown.
The City put out a call for local veterans to submit their names, photos, and details of service, and accepted submissions for more than a year before printing the final 24. The selection represents veterans of many different conflicts and generations.
The banners feature the name, photo, and branch of service of each local veteran, and will be hung throughout Desert Hot Springs through Veterans Day and until the holiday season. They will return in future years.
The design is larger than the City's standard banner, and features wind slits to minimize weather damage.
“Desert Hot Springs is proud that so many American heroes call our town home,” Mayor Scott
Matas said. “We can never thank them enough for their service, but we are excited to pay
tribute in such a big way.”
