Hinton, W.Va. (WVVA) - Veteran's Tribute banners were hung in the Hinton Historic District Friday.

The banners will be displayed to commemorate Armed Forces Day and Memorial Day.

Active duty military were also included on the banners.

Many banners are family members of local people including President of the Veteran's Memorial Museum Tim Wheeler. His father Bobby Wheeler was an army veteran. His banner hangs on a light post on Temple Street. "I love it, and I’m sure he would too because he was very active with the museum. He got me started," said Wheeler.

The Veterans Memorial Museum, Explore Summers County, and the City of Hinton organized the banners.

Thirty-one banners were hung but Wheeler said they have enough space for 72 banners and are still taking submissions.
