In every corner of our City, there are stories of valor, dedication and resilience waiting to be celebrated. A unique banner program is being launched to honor and pay tribute to those brave individuals who selflessly serve or have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. This program symbolizes our gratitude and respect for those who have sacrificed to keep us safe and secure.

  • Presently serving full-time active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces
  • A retired or honorably discharged military veteran
  • A member of the U.S. Armed Forces who died while on active duty

Banners will be displayed on light poles in select areas of Wentzville between Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Locations are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. We will accept the first 40 to complete the application and submit payment. These banners will serve as a visual reminder of the extraordinary people who call our community home and inspire us to strive for greatness.
