The Veterans Banner Program was created to honor Nye County's past and present service men and women for their service to our country. The banner acts as a symbol of our gratitude that pays tribute to the commitment and courage displayed by individuals that have served in the Armed Forces and, encourages a new generation to provide service to their country. Commissioner Butch Borasky, who retired after 12 years on the commission in December of 2017, was a lead advocate for this program. The banners are being paid for through the county Veterans Service Fund.
In addition to Veterans, there are dedicated banners for "Missing in Action/POW" and "Nye County Honors Our Heroes." Selected veterans' names and photos are displayed on banners at the Calvada Boulevard Eye in Pahrump and will be coming soon to the Tonopah Courthouse.
