The Holyoke Veterans’ Services office is now accepting applications for the Hometown Hero Banner Program and the Purple Heart Trail Program. Text Size

The Hometown Hero Banner program is intended to showcase and honor Veterans from the City of Holyoke or who currently reside in Holyoke. Banners will exhibit the image of the Veteran, branch of service, years of service and will be placed throughout the City of Holyoke on a space available basis. Banners will be displayed for a period of one year and then returned to the purchaser.

Purple Heart Trail signs may be purchased/sponsored and placed on the trail on a space available basis. The signs will remain posted until they are deemed to be unserviceable by the Holyoke DPW, Soldiers Memorial Commission, or the Holyoke Department of Veterans’ Services. Signs may be purchased in Honor of a Veteran who is a recipient of the Purple Heart but must have proof of the award and proof of Honorable Service (orders, DD-214).
