MINT HILL, NC – The Town of Mint Hill began a new program this fall honoring Mint Hill’s fallen service members, veterans, and active duty service members of the United States Armed Forces with banners displayed on light poles around the fountain at Town Hall.

The banners showcase each veteran’s photo along with his or her name, the conflict or war he or she served in, and his or her branch of service.  Honorees are all active, retired or honorably discharged members of the US Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines or Navy.  Additionally, honorees must be former or current residents of the Town of Mint Hill or actively involved in the Mint Hill Veteran Community.



Currently honored around Town Hall are the following seventeen “Hometown Heroes:”

  • Ted Biggers
  • James Clark
  • Dylan Connor
  • Charles Darnell, Jr.
  • George (Steve) Davis
  • Tyron Eason
  • David Kirkpatrick
  • Frank Letto
  • Robert Long
  • Donna Miller
  • Jack Miller
  • Auford Neal, Jr.
  • Lance Nelson
  • Michael Stading
  • Mike Stubbs
  • Don Putnam
  • Terence Wolf

The banners currently on display honor living veterans.  A new round of banner will be hung for Memorial Day honoring those who have passed.  The application is currently closed but will open back up the beginning of the year.  For more information on the Town of Mint Hill Hometown Heroes Program, contact Sheryl  Smith at Mint Hill Town Hall (704) 545-2335 or ssmith@admin.minthill.com.
