Armed Forces & First Responder Banner Program

 The City of Longwood is both proud and excited to be able to offer the opportunity to those interested in purchasing a recognition or memorial banner for armed forces veterans as well as current or former first responders (police and fire).


  • Banners are 24” wide and 48” long. 
  • Banners will be installed by city staff at Candyland Sports Complex along a popular walkway near our baseball fields. This area allows onlookers to casually stroll through the park and view the banners at a leisurely pace. 
  • Banners will be displayed approximately from May 22 through November 22 or from November 23 through May 21. The last day to sign up is April 15, 2024.
  • City staff will review the recipient’s DD214 form before moving forward with the banner process for the armed forces banner option. Banner recipients must be on active duty or honorably discharged from one of the branches of the U.S. Armed Forces or an active or retired first responder. 
  • The cost per banner is $195.00 and includes the design, production, installation, and removal of the banner. Banners must be requested and paid for by the serviceperson or first responder or an immediate family of the service member or first responder to be honored. (Immediate family includes parents, spouses, children, and siblings.)
  • Payments will be accepted through checks, cash, or credit cards (2.95% processing fee added for credit cards). 
  • Banners will be displayed on the poles in the pictures to the right.
  • Fill out the Banner Program Interest form
  • Please attach headshots, DD214 (if serviceperson), Agency or Service Branch Logo, and all other forms in the form below or email Ryan Rinaldo.
