The Hometown Heroes Banners in Hannibal are on full display throughout the city now.
Almost 300 banners are on light poles and in various businesses around town.
They honor veterans who are from Hannibal and have served in various eras.
Business owners say the banners are a great way to show off pride for Hannibal’s own.
“The tourists are telling us what a great way to honor your people and I have to agree with that. I think it’s just a perfect thing to add to America’s Hometown, we should be honoring our heroes,” said Mississippi Marketplace owner Linda Studer.
The banners will be displayed until Veterans day in November.
