The City of Mesa Hometown Heroes Banner Program is a living tribute created to recognize and honor Mesa residents and their immediate family members who are currently serving, or are veterans who served in the United States Armed Forces.

The deadline to submit an application has been extended until Friday, Oct. 7.
In order to qualify, the hero to be displayed must be an active member or veteran of the United States Armed Forces and must be a resident or has an immediate family member who resides in Mesa. Verification of qualifications is required.
The cost of each Hometown Heroes banner is $150, including installation and removal. To submit a tax-free donation in sponsor of this program, please contribute at www.mesaaz.gov/heroes and use our easy PayPal option. Banners shall be displayed for a specified period of time throughout the course of one year, before being retired and given to the hero or the celebrated hero’s family. Applications will be accepted year round and selected on a first come, first serve basis.
Banners selected will be installed this fall to coincide with the East Valley Veterans Parade Nov. 11 in Mesa. Applicants will be notified of the installation of the banner honoring the military service person or veteran.
