About Hampton Heroes
About the Hampton Heroes Program . . .
Are you a Veteran of the US Military?
If you live in Hampton, work in Hampton, or are a graduate of Hampton High School, you are eligible to be inducted into our Hampton Heroes Program.
Since 2001, local Veterans who have completed and returned the form, are invited to be honored guests at a program at one of our schools on Veterans Day. About 200 Hampton men and women have been inducted as Hampton Heroes and recognized at the Veterans Day program.
From the information on the forms, mini-biographies are collected and reproduced in a spiral-bound booklet which each inductee receives. The stories and photos veterans (both combat and non-combat veterans) share through the booklet, teach Hampton students valuable lessons about service, duty, and sacrifice.
