Application packets need four items to be accepted by us.


1. The completed Hometown Hero banner application.    

2. An 8x10 photograph can be mailed in for scanning or hand delivered to a chapter meeting OR a high resolution digital photograph can be sent to zen@rotwbluestarmoms.com      The servicemember must be in a uniform and show their face but does not have to be the formal "ribbons and flag portrait" that we all have.

3. The banners are $350.00 currently.  If you are paying for the banner, the check for $350 should be made out to RotW Blue Star Moms.  

4.  Banner Timesheet documenting how you have earned the banner if you are requesting the chapter to pay for your banner.  You must donate at least the minimum number of hours performing approved troop and/or chapter support.  Currently the number of hours to earn a banner is 14. 


  • You can drop off the application/fees/photo at any chapter meeting or contact us.  
  • If you mail it to us, we suggest you send the photograph in a photo mailer.  We will not be responsible for any damaged photographs delivered to us in the mail.  We recommend hand delivery.  Please include your check, application, and/or timesheet log with the photo.
  • You may also fax the application to us and mail in the check and photo.  We are working to get PayPal on our site soon.
  • We go to press with the next wave of banners when we collect several applications with photographs and fees.  Once your banner is manufactured you can choose an available pole or one will be chosen for you.  There is no guarantee of location for the actual banner display but we are trying to place them in the actual hometown.  Pole locations are decided on a first come - first serve basis but chapter members are given first choice in each wave of banners.
