City to recognize veterans, current military in City Hall memorial
BARSTOW • The city is preparing to install several banners and cement pavers in front of City Hall to recognize the names of current military and veterans from Barstow.
The unveiling for the new installment will be at 4:30 p.m. Monday at Barstow City Hall, where council members and Veterans’ home representatives will speak and be in attendance.
Twenty banners representing the five branches of military will hang with names of 120 current active military from Barstow. By 2013, the city hopes to expand the display with individual photos and banners to ensure that Barstow’s Military Personnel are recognized for their service and sacrifice, a city press release said.
