In early 2018, the City of Dublin created an annual street banner program to honor local veterans and active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces. Community members may sponsor an individual banner honoring a service member with a connection to Dublin.
The banners were on display between Memorial Day and Veterans Day (May – November), along Dougherty Road between Scarlett Drive and Amador Valley Boulevard.
In 2020, the City of Dublin will again honor other veterans and active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces who live or have immediate family in Dublin. Please check back in February 2020 for information on how to sponsor a banner.
In 2019, there were eleven honorees:
Chief Petty Officer Kyle Chronister - U.S. Coast Guard
Senior Master Sergeant Russell Downie - U.S. Air Force
Sergeant Camille Edward - U.S. Army
Master Sergeant Norbert James Felix - U.S. Marine Corps Veteran
Staff Sergeant Joshua J. Jensen - U.S. Army
Lieutenant Commander Terry Lane - U.S. Navy Veteran
Sergeant Leann Nobida - U.S. Army Veteran
Master Sergeant Josh Sevier - Army National Guard
Specialist 4th Class Chris W. Smith - U.S. Army Veteran
Lance Corporal Daniel Van Bonn - U.S. Marine Corps
Captain Benjamin Young - U.S. Army
Thank you to all the sponsors who helped make the 2019 program possible. Check out the photos of honorees or their family members receiving their banner at the December 3, 2019 City Council meeting.
