Operation Hometown Heroes


Operation Hometown Heroes is a military tribute program that salutes the Arcadians that are currently serving in all branches of the armed forces.  As a member of Operation Hometown Heroes, each service person will have their name, photo, and biography included on the City’s website during their term of service.  In addition, a flag tribute will be displayed on the City Hall lawn during Armed Forces Week (third week in May), along with a yard sign for Hero families to take home.
