1st Lt. Tyler Daugherty and Seaman 3d Derrick Turner are active members of the Armed Forces of the United States. Continuing a tradition that began in 1917 during WWI, VFW Post 5443 presented Betty Crafton, Daugherty’s grandmother, and Christine Daugherty, his mother, with Blue Star Banners. Seaman Turner’s grandfather, Harry Turner, also received a Blue Star Banner.
The Banners are to hang in the window of the home in recognition of the service and sacrifice of both service members and their families.
The Post has committed to present Blue Star Banners to qualifying families in the Kennett area.
