FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Since 2014 the City of Fort Wayne has recognized more than 100 residents who are actively deployed.
The Blue Star Banner Initiative is looking for your help in finding those we can celebrate by nominating them for the honor by filling out an application.
John Perlich, the public information officer for the City of Fort Wayne, says although it’s only a small token of appreciation, it means a great deal to the Summit City.
Perlich says, “It's been a really neat experience for us to not only thank these brave servicemen and women but also to see the excitement and how grateful their family members have been.”
Perlich knows that just by giving thanks, it reminds all of Allen County of the sacrifice made by military personnel.
He says, “We take that special recognition and time out to make sure that our community knows that we get to enjoy freedom each day because of the brave men and women who serve us overseas on a daily basis.”
