the project

We are seeking financial support to successfully implement 2020 Pittsburgh Military Tribute Banner (PMTB) project. The goal of 2020 PMTB project is to proudly display beautiful 29” x 60” military tribute banners honoring our local military veteran/ active-duty service members by displaying their photo, branch of service, and military service information from banners displayed in Freedom Corner (Centre Avenue/ Crawford Street) through Hill District Centre Avenue corridor to Centre Avenue/ Herron Avenue through Centre Avenue in the Historic Hill District from Centre Avenue/ Crawford Street to Centre Avenue/ Herron Avenue Independence Day through Veterans Day 2020.

the steps

1) Receive applications, photos and DD-214s for military tribute banners from minority veterans now through June 5, 2020

2) Order Military Tribute Banners June 8, 2020

3) City of Pittsburgh 1st Responders will install banners/ brackets 4th week of June 2020

4) Banners will hang for 4 months (1st week of July 2020 - Last week in November 2020)

5) Banners will be given to the family or sponsor at the end of display period (Last week in November 2020)

why we're doing it

The Hill District will be the first neighborhood in Pittsburgh to honor local military veterans and active-duty service members in this special way. Other boroughs have started a military tribute banner program in past years with a tremendous response and we believe this will be the case with Pittsburgh, PA. The PMTB project is a small way we can acknowledge the sacrifice many of our neighbors have made serving our community and our Country. The PMTB project will not only increase self-value for the honorees and their families but also add civic pride to one of the most historic corridors in America.
