Honoring Our Military —
Deadline Approaching for Banner and Paver Program

The City of Moreno Valley proudly installs Military Appreciation Banners that display residents’ names, photos, and branches of service, in support of our local military personnel. With this program, the City hopes to help preserve the sense of patriotism and pride in those who serve in the United States military throughout our community. Our goal is to honor and recognize those men and women who have served in the past or are currently serving, whether defending the home front or serving overseas.

Military BannerThough applications may be submitted any time, the City is currently accepting banner and paver installation orders from the community for installation by the Veterans’ Day Ceremony. Applications are due by October 16 for a Veteran’s Day installation.
