We are now accepting applications for the Hometown Heroes Military Banner Program sponsored by Florida Hospital DeLand and Florida Hospital Fish Memorial.

The City of DeLand has a rich history of honoring military veterans including events like hosting the Volusia County Veterans Day Parade. The Hometown Heroes Military Banner Program will build on that rich history. The program will allow DeLand residents to honor family members that are active service members or past military officers that have been honorably discharged or died in the line of duty by having the city display street-pole banners honoring our veterans in Downtown DeLand.

Thanks to Florida Hospital DeLand and Florida Fish Memorial the program is free for DeLand residents (both in city limits and unincorporated areas) and is on a first-come, first-served basis. We have space for 16 veterans as of May 11 for our 2018 program so get your applications in soon!

All honorees or their families will also receive a keepsake replica banner created by Trophy Factory Plus.

To download an application, please click here. Applications and necessary documentation may be emailed to Coco Montanez at montaneza@deland.org. For program requirements see below.

All of our 2018 honorees are also listed below.
