The PA Hometown Heroes banner campaign was kicked off with an
opening ceremony held on May 12, 2007 in the
Soldiers Grove area of the Capital Complex in Harrisburg. Over 400
family members joined by the public and representatives of various
civic groups were in attendance. Our mission is to honor our loved
ones who have died in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring
Freedom (Afghanistan), and the Global War on Terror.
The families of the service members listed at the left have chosen to participate in the Pennsylvania Hometown Heroes banner program. You can click on a name to see a photo of the service member and an image of the banner.
A few families joined the program after the cut off date to produce the banners. For those families, and those that are lost until the banners come down we are producing a poster similar to the banner which will be displayed in the Harrisburg Visitors Center at 22 N. 2nd Street, Harrisburg, PA.
If your loss is recent and you wish to participate contact me when you are ready. If you earlier decided not to participate and have reconsidered, again, contact me. We would like to honor all Pennsylvania's Hometown Heroes.
A list of all Pennsylvania Heroes can be found on the All Heroes page. This list includes all those lost from Pennsylvania whether they are participating in the banner program or not.
