April 15, 2021 - The City of Fort Wayne will continue its Blue Star Banner Program to honor and recognize City of Fort Wayne residents and City of Fort Wayne government employees who are actively deployed.

The Blue Star Banner initiative started in May 2014 and has recognized more than 100 City of Fort Wayne residents and City government employees who have been actively deployed.

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 along West Jefferson Boulevard from the Time Corners area to Swinney Park. Banners are displayed through November and then removed during the winter months.
