Mason’s Banner Program

The City of Mason in partnership with the American Legion Post 194 and the VFW Post 9622 have two new programs to honor Mason’s veterans and active military. If you have a family member or friend who is a veteran or in active military, purchasing a street banner or yard sign to display during patriotic holidays is a great way to honor their service to the country.  The military street banners are placed by the City along major thoroughfares in Mason and yard signs provide a more personal acknowledgement for family and friends.

Banners being displayed throughout the community as part of Memorial Day 2021 can be found along Mason Montgomery Road, Tylersville Road, Innovation Way and Sports Center Complex Drive.

This program is intended to honor military members who currently reside in Mason, resided in Mason during their military service and call Mason their hometown or are an immediate family member of a current Mason resident. Individuals serving or those who have served in any of the six branches of military service (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and Spaceforce) including Reserves and National Guard and must meet the following conditions:

  • Currently be active duty
  • Be an honorably discharged veteran
  • Died in the line of duty

Residents may also purchase a unique yard sign in honor of a military family member, friend or neighbor. Compliment your military street banner with an individualized yard sign. Like the banner program, this program is intended to honor military members who currently reside in Mason, resided in Mason during their military service and call Mason their hometown or are an immediate family member of a current Mason resident.

Mason’s Veterans Memorial is located at 6000 Mason-Montgomery Road in Mason, in front of the Mason Municipal Center. The Mason Veterans Memorial was dedicated on Saturday, November 8, 2003. At the head of the memorial, a flag proudly waves above a wall depicting the five branches of the service: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, and Navy. At the base of the wall and around the flag are memorial bricks for veterans. The main feature of the memorial is a set of 10 pillars representing the 10 major conflicts in American history. The height of each pillar is proportional to the number of casualties in the war. At the end of the row is a low stone representing the hope for peace and the end to casualties in war. An eternal flame at the lower end of the memorial will burn until all prisoners of war and missing in action are returned to American soil. It stands in front of a wall of tears that represents the sorrows of all those affected by war. Efforts to raise funds to support the memorial continue through the sale of engraved brick pavers.  Please click below to apply.
