The Huntington Beach Hometown Heroes Banner Program honors the brave men of women of Huntington Beach currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. This is a joint effort between the City of Huntington Beach and American Legion Post 133. The personalized banners are displayed on light poles within the city to both celebrate and remind residents of their dedication to our country

Banners shall be displayed for a period of 12 months, at which time the sponsor will have the option of renewing or, if the soldier is no longer actively serving, retiring the banner.Â Banners will be returned to the sponsor.
