Do you know a Hometown Hero?
We are seeking veterans stories to highlight on our Hometown Heroes kiosks. These are free-standing displays that ring the inside of the Learning Center. The plates are designed to feature local veterans and highlight the key aspects of their service. Regardless of what era they served in, from the Revolution to present day, they can be part of the learning experience that shows students and daily visitors of the rich heritage of service that have lived in New Hampshire.
We have 14 individual static kiosks that hold feature cards with photo and a brief summary of their service. We are in process of building a library of cards from all services and all eras to change out periodically to highlight New Hampshire veterans.
How to recommend a veteran...
In order to ensure accuracy and continuity of our displays, we require a few things to produce the display plate for our kiosks. The form below must be filled out and a point of contact must be included (the veteran themselves, family member, authorized estate representative, etc.) so that we may obtain permission to produce and publicly display the information and image on each plate.
Include as much information as possible. It is better to have more information that we can distill down to make a meaningful summary. Minimum information required includes full name, rank, period served, and highlights of the veteran's service (example: Wars served in, battles he/she participated, special recognitions or medal awards and notable service accomplishments). These will be used in the higlight list of the veteran on the plate.
A photograph of the veteran or service member, preferably in uniform. Photo can be black & white or color and should be of good quality resolution. Photo should be digitized and at least 300 x 300 pixel resolution. We accept JPG, TIF, BMP formatted photo files. If you have a physical photo you can contact us at email@example.com to arrange for it to be scanned or you can also have it scanned as a local Kinkos or similar copy center. Some town libraries and pharmacy stores like CVS, Rite Aid have Kodak reproduction stations where scanning can also be done.
If you are not a family member: While we will make a best effort to obtain permission for public display, there is no guarantee the family or estate executor will grant permission. Unfortunately, to protect individual and family privacy, we cannot publish any information obtained here with out explicit permission from the appropriate authority of the veteran's family or legal entity acting on behalf of the veteran.
Submission Form being developed.
Will post here once completed
