Desert Hot Springs Honors Local Veterans

Posted by City of Desert Hot Springs on Feb 4, 2019 1:24:00 PM

The City of Desert Hot Springs is continuing plans to recognize local heroes with a campaign of honorary banners throughout downtown.


Dozens of banners will be hung from light posts throughout the city center, each featuring the photo, name, and military branch of a local hero.


The call for entry period has been extended to June 2019, in the hopes that all local veterans will get a chance to participate.


“Desert Hot Springs is proud that so many American heroes call our town home,” Mayor Scott Matas says. “We can never thank them enough for their service, but we are excited to pay tribute in such a big way.”


Veterans may submit their photos for banner placement by emailing Only high-quality, high-resolution photos, please.


The banners will be hung by Veterans Day 2019.
