Occoquan military banner tribute

The Town of Occoquan and VFW Post 7916 have partnered to honor local U.S. military veterans by erecting patriotic banners as a testament to the community’s history of service.  Visitors are invited to walk along the sidewalks of the Town’s historic district and browse the nearly 30 banners that are mounted and on display from Memorial Day through Veterans Day.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 7916 was established on June 26, 1946 and has served local veterans, active duty military and their families, along with the Occoquan community for over 70 years. The military tribute banner program is managed by the VFW Post 7916 and is funded through a sponsorship program. Families, businesses, and individuals are able to sponsor banners and choose a special U.S. Veteran or active duty service member to honor. Sponsoring families receive the banner as a special keepsake at the end of the display period.

The Town of Occoquan supports the effort to recognize military service members through this program and recognizes the positive contribution that VFW Post 7916 makes to not only the Occoquan community, but also to the veterans and their families within the region.

This is an annual program with new opportunities each year. For more information or to sponsor a military banner in 2019, visit vfwpost7916.org.
