The Bullhead City Area Military Recognition Program was created through a partnership with the Tri-State Military Moms, Inc., the city of Bullhead City, and the Arizona Department of Transportation, to honor and recognize active duty military members of our community.   Banners will display the official military photo of the service member, name and branch of the United States Armed Forces.


The honoree must be an active duty member of the United States Armed Forces.

The honoree must be a resident or an immediate family member of a permanent resident of Bullhead City, Ft. Mohave, Mohave Valley, Needles CA, or Laughlin NV.

Immediate family members include spouse, son/daughter, parent, grandchild, great grandchild, sister, brother, or in-laws.

Initial and annual verification of active duty status will be required.


Nominations will be accepted on an ongoing basis.  Banners will be installed twice a year, at Memorial Day and Veterans Day.  There is no cost to the nominee or nominee family, however, if sufficient funds are not available at the desired installation time, priority status for the following installation date will be given.


Banners will be displayed along Hwy 95 (Heroes Highway) on alternating light posts within the city limits and on Hancock Rd.  Banners will be displayed as long as the military service member meets the established criteria, and the condition of the banner is acceptable for display. Banners are the property of the Tri-State Military moms organization and may be installed, removed, disposed of, or distributed to family members or the military nominee at their discretion.  At the term of the display, the banner will be presented to the honoree or representative at a future City Council meeting. Verification of active duty service will be conducted every six months according to the contact information on the nomination form. After three attempts of contact with no response, the banner will be removed.


The cost of banners is funded solely by the generous donations received from individuals, organizations, and local businesses. There is no cost to the nomination family or service member. Donations may be made to the program and are not accepted to sponsor a specific banner nominee. Please contact the Tri-State Military Moms at (928) 201-0319 for further information.
