Military Banner Program
Crafton Borough takes great pride in the men and women who have served our country in times of need. Now we’d like to take this opportunity to invite you to help us honor your friends and family from Crafton who have served our great country.
The Military Banner Program salutes our brave men and women who are currently serving and those who have served in the military by creating and displaying a 24” x 36” military banner to be exhibited in Crafton between Memorial Day and Veterans Day for years to come. Banners will also be displayed at www.troopbanners.com/Crafton.
