The Banner Across America started in May 2010 with forum member ‘kcm1582’ having his photo taken with the TRS banner in the Atlantic Ocean. The banner was then passed on from member to member to see if we could hand carry the banner to the Pacific Ocean. This adventure would allow TRS members to get together and meet while continuing the banner along its journey.
