Inspired by a growing trend in Western Pennsylvania, North Versailles Twp. commissioners agreed to participate in the Military Banner Tribute Program.
Commission Vice President Sam Juliano and Commissioner George Thompson said the banners will be displayed along Route 30 and other roads.
“It’s a nice honor," Thompson said. "Bethel Park, for example, has over 100 of them on their streets.” The banners will be paid for by families of service members and will be on display from Memorial Day to Veterans Day, according to township manager Patricia Logo.
Dravosburg, East Pittsburgh, McKeesport and Port Vue also have participated in the troop banners program.
