The mission

The Mission

We are proud to serve those who have served our country. The Salinas Hometown Heroes Banner Program is a non-profit organization committed to providing a display of banners along Oldtown's Main Street, honoring the veterans and active duty service members who have called Salinas home. Our mission is to pay tribute to those who have sacrificed life, limb and time for the sake of others. We are dedicated to ensuring their memory endures, and their courage remains a source of inspiration for all.



To have your or your loved one's banner displayed as part of the Salinas Hometown Heroes Banner program, simply submit a photograph in uniform, along with the name and branch of service, to the Salinas Hometown Heroes Banner Committee. These personal banners will be showcased along South Main Street in Oldtown during two installations each year, with the spring installation from mid-May through mid-July and the fall installation from mid-September through mid-November. It's a wonderful way to honor and pay tribute to local heroes.



The Salinas Hometown Heroes Banner Program seeks support from local businesses and individuals to honor veterans and service members at no cost to their families. Businesses can contribute through financial sponsorship, promotion, volunteerism, and in-kind donations, showcasing their support for the program and the veteran community. Individuals can contribute through financial donations, spreading awareness, volunteering their time, participating in fundraising events, and nominating heroes, collectively making the program a success and a heartfelt tribute to local heroes.

'Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.'
