Presented by Embassy Bank

Join Embassy Bank in honoring the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country in a community celebration.

Our Hometown Heroes

Presented by Embassy Bank

For the 13th year, the SteelStacks Campus will be transformed into a living memorial honoring our hometown heroes. From May 27-July 4 the campus will be draped with images of local military heroes as a display of the appreciation and gratitude for their sacrifices and contributions. The banners will display photos of the soldiers, their rank, branch of service, era of service and hometown.

Photos will be accepted starting March 1 through March 31. The first 200 photos received will be accepted for the 2023 display. Photos submitted from 2011-2022 will be on this year’s banners. Changes will not be made to existing banners unless the soldier has given the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

Photos can also be dropped off in person at a local Embassy Bank branch or at ArtsQuest’s Banana Factory, 25 W. 3rd St. in Bethlehem. All hardcopies will be returned promptly to the location where they were originally submitted.

Submit Your Hometown Hero

Images must be of high-resolution jpeg, tiff, bitmap or PDF file. Color photographs, as well as black and white photos will be accepted. All images submitted in previous years will automatically be displayed as part of the “Our Hometown Heroes” display. Changes will not be made to existing banners unless the Soldier has given the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
