The mission of the Oldtown Salinas Hometown Hero Banner Program is to honor all veterans who were residents of the city of Salinas with a display of banners along Oldtown’s Main Street.

All current and former veterans who have donned the uniforms of our Armed Forces, while honorably serving our country and community, deserve our respect and recognition.


And lest we forget those who paid the ultimate price ensuring the rest of us continue to live with peace and freedom.  These banners will be a testament to our respect for them and their families.

The Mission

No matter when you served…

….to submit a picture of yourself in uniform, along with your name and branch of service to the

Oldtown Salinas Hometown Hero Banner Committee.

Your personal banner will be displayed along South Main Street in Oldtown, as part of our Hometown Heroes Banner program.


If you called Salinas home while you were in the service, or if you live here now that you have been discharged, contact one of our committee members for information.
