(Victorville)–Dressed in fatigues, with his wife Falesha on one arm and his mother Valerie on the other, Brian Curtis recently arrived at Victorville City Hall to thank Mayor McEachron and City staff for their continued support of our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Brian Curtis is a 2009 Graduate of Goodwill High School. He is now an experienced 20 year-old Army Soldier who has intensity in his eyes when asked about the experience. Brian is home on-leave with just a few days left to enjoy his family, but felt it was important to thank the City of Victorville for supporting him. Brian will return to Iraq to finish his tour of duty.
Mayor McEachron thanked Brian for his courageous service and shared, “It was so great to meet and spend some time with Brian Curtis, his wife and mother this afternoon. I truly appreciate all that he and his fellow soldiers do to protect our country and to fight for our freedom. Although he is being deployed again soon we all look forward to his safe return.”
The Military Banner Program originated in October 2007 and to date has brought honor and pride to approximately 120 service men and women who call Victorville their home.
Each month a new banner is unveiled during a City Council meeting. The banners are then displayed along city streets for the community to appreciate.
