Hometown Heroes Banner Program


The Town of Guilderland is taking the helm to continue the popular Hometown Heroes Banner Program that has gained local and national attention. This is our 6th year! The program proudly recognizes active duty and veteran service members, both living and deceased. Each banner will honor a specific current or former Guilderland (including Altamont) serviceperson and will include his or her name, branch of service, and photo.

Banner Location

Banners will be displayed in the beautiful setting of Tawasentha Park. Every request will be honored as placements are made available. The Town of Guilderland will place and maintain the banners while they are on display.


To qualify, an honoree must be:

  • A current or former resident of Guilderland (including Altamont)
  • Serving on active duty in the United States Armed Forces or National Guard or a military veteran (living or deceased) who has served in the United States Armed Forces or National Guard and has been honorably discharged
