June 23, 2020 - To honor and recognize City of Fort Wayne residents and Government employees who are actively deployed out of the country, the City of Fort Wayne’s Blue Star Banner program will continue for its seventh year.

The Blue Star Banner initiative was introduced by Mayor Tom Henry in 2014 and has recognized nearly 100 service members since the program started.

Family and friends of deployed military personnel are encouraged to complete an application at www.cityoffortwayne.org/bluestarbanner. Once the applications are reviewed, banners will be made and displayed on light poles going east along West Jefferson Boulevard to Swinney Park.
