The Hometown Banner Program is an inspirational way for the Coronado community to honor the many men and women who have lived here during their military careers.

Banners commemorating those selected for the honor are hung along the City’s designated Avenue of Heroes, Third and Fourth streets from Orange Avenue to Naval Air Station North Island. Those selected are honored with a reading of their biographies and a personal photo presentation at a special ceremony in front of family and friends.

Banners are provided at no cost to the families or honorees once they are retired. Any active duty, veteran or retired service member who served honorably and lived or served in Coronado is eligible for recognition.

In a town known for its military presence, Coronado has plenty of candidates. If you would like to nominate someone, visit Nominations are accepted on a continuing basis.

The next ceremony is set for Nov. 5.
