It’s a touching scene we see on the news: troops come home from Iraq and Afghanistan, and their families are eagerly awaiting their return, holding up signs that welcome them home. You can’t help but get a little choked up watching the family drop the sign when they finally get to embrace their returning soldier.
At SIGNARAMA Norristown, we wanted to help area families with their welcomes, so we began offering free troop banners for family and friends who were greeting loved ones as they returned home.
As we say on our website, it’s “our little way of saying thank you to those who serve our country.”
The Troop Tribute banners are made from vinyl, and always carry the soldier’s name, rank, and their branch and logo of service. And if a family member asks, we can even customize it a little further.
Recently, my wife was talking with the wife of a soldier who was returning home after 400 days overseas. To make his return home extra special, she gave us a photo of her husband in a chopper, and we were able to make the banner a couple feet longer and add it to her sign.
It’s been our honor for us here at SIGNARAMA Norristown to aid in the joyous return of our community’s loved ones. We thank everyone who’s returning home for their service!
