Blue Star Service Banner

Americans are showing their pride in the servicemen and women and the Waymart American Legion is offering families a way to show their pride in the loved ones serving in the Armed Forces -- the Blue Star Service Banners.
The Waymart Legion is offering the banners to area families with family members in the Armed Forces.
The Blue Star Service Banner first appeared during World War I to recognize the service of our children during that war. It was revived during War World II and hung in the windows of many Wayne County homes. It can be seen Mrs. Ryan's home in the movie Saving Private Ryan.
The American Legion is rekindling the tradition for our servicemen and women allowing families to have a visible symbol of their pride in family members serving in the military.
The Blue Star Service Banner features a white field with a blue star sewn onto a red banner. A banner can have up to five stars, signifying that five members of that family are currently serving in the military. A gold star replaces the blue star if a family member is killed.
The banners can be displayed by families who have a loved one serving in the armed forces, included activated members of the National Guard and Reserves, whether the family member is a son, daughter, brother, sister, wife, husband, cousin, grandchild, etc.
Families who would like a Blue Star Service Banner can email post889@nep.net. The banners cost just $5.95 plus shipping and handling.

In the spirit of the Honor Rolls which appeared in towns across the country during World War II, we'll be building one in Waymart for all our veterans. We're now looking for all Waymart area veterans, peace time and war time. Click here to learn more. We've prepared a veteran's profile sheet which will allows us to create a book of the personal history of each veteran. The book when its finished will be kept at either the Waymart Borough or the Gravity Railroad Museum as well as the Legion Hall.
