Hometown Heroes


The Gloversville Hometown Heroes Banner Program debuted in 2021. The program honors Gloversville's own heroes, who dedicated their lives to fight for the freedoms we are able to enjoy today. Members of the community honor their loved hero by purchasing a personalized banner to be hung on decorative lampposts in Downtown Gloversville. Below is the list of the current Gloversville Hometown Heroes in the banner program. Please click on their names to see a copy of their banners, a brief description about their military records and a note of where to find their banners in Downtown Gloversville. Families and friends of several of the heroes submitted extra stories, testimonials and information.
