This morning, I was proud to join local veteran leaders to celebrate the installation of 27 “Hometown Heroes” banners, placed on Huguenot and Main Streets around Faneuil Park in the city’s East End. The banners help remind all of us of the profound impact veterans have had on our community and of our lasting debt to those who have served.  I am especially grateful to Lupita Mendoza of the Veterans Advisory Committee and to American Legion Post 8 for spearheading this moving tribute.
