About the "Hometown Heroes" Project:

Countless Hannibal residents have served in the U.S. military. These men and women put their own lives on hold to serve our country, and we are grateful for their service. Many even gave their lives.


We invite you to share your family member or loved one's military photo and military service here. We will host this online legacy throughout 2019 and are displaying 269 banners throughout Hannibal during the Bicentennial in 2019 (Memorial Day through Veterans Day). You can also purchase a brick to honor a veteran!

We are honoring all who have ever lived in Hannibal who have served in the military at some point in their lives. This can be an ancestor, yourself, or a current family member.


Please provide the following:

  • High resolution photo (in uniform, if possible) NOTE: These images will be enlarged for banners, and low resolution photos may become pixilated and unclear. If your photo is low resolution, we will not be able to create a banner with it.

  • Completed information/permission form - download form here.

Please send PHOTO and COMPLETED FORM to us at photos@hannibal2019.com. We can only accept emailed submissions!

Our sincere thanks to Independent's Service Co. for sponsoring this project! They made and donated the banners that the City of Hannibal has on display throughout the downtown.
