The Carner, Etman, Smith VFW Post 6340 in Grafton is continuing to honor the veterans of our area with Military Tribute Banners. These banners, with the name and picture of a past or present member of our country’s armed forces, are attached to the side of a pole along the main streets of the Town of Grafton.

The banners are 24 by 48 inches, double sided in full color and will be hung between Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day. They include required mounting hardware.
Please submit the name of the service member as it should appear on the banner – first, last, suffix; dates of service (if known); branch of service, rank (if known), and a photograph of the honoree in uniform (please, no one else in the photo). Also required is sponsor’s information – name, address, phone number and email address.
