About the banners

Each sturdy red-white-and-blue banner includes a photo of the Cal U student, graduate, employee or family member being recognized, along with details about his or her military service.

Each honoree should have a direct or family tie to the campus community or Cal U Global Online. All members of the U.S. armed services are eligible, including current, former or reserve members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard.

Those who submit a veteran’s name are recognized on the banner, along with the business or community sponsor, if applicable. Once the annual display is taken down, the sturdy banners are carefully cleaned and stored so they can be reused year after year.

The banners transform the Cal U campus each year, typically during November, when the University marks Veterans Day with a series of special events.

Order a banner

Although service members and veterans may place an order for themselves, most banners are ordered by family members, friends or colleagues, who sometimes ask a business or community organization to help defray the $80 cost.
