The Corcoran Community Foundation and the local Rotary Club have joined forces to highlight and thank Corcoran soldiers for their service to our country. The two entities have donated funds for the Downtown Military Banner Project. Banners which were hung last week will feature names, military branch, military rank and years of service of each serviceman and woman in Corcoran. Banners will be hung periodically throughout the year. The first set of banners includes Walter Thomas Putzel, who served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War.
