WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (WETM – TV) – The Hometown Heroes banners are now in Watkins Glen.
One street in Watkins Glen has every war represented in the banners starting from the Civil War.
There are currently 60 banners up now with more than 40 in the works for next season. There’s even a military dog flag at the middle school. The banners are sponsored by Schuyler housing opportunity and were a community effort.
“We feel pretty honored, we’ve got one woman,” said a Hometown Heroes committee member.
The ladies said they are honored to finally have the banners up in the community.
The banners will be taken down during winter and stored at a local high school where they will stay until the next season.
