El Dorado Main Street recognizes the sacrifice that each veteran makes for our country.  It’s with great pride and honor that we fly these banners as a way of saying thank you from a grateful community!

El Dorado has a long history of honoring Veterans from the El Dorado Area as well as Nation Wide.  Click here to read about  this impressive history.


The Veteran Banners should be flying this year (2017) from the middle of October thru the middle of November.  Each veteran is listed below.  Click on their name and it will take you to a page that has detailed information about that veteran.
