Join the effort to feature Hero Street in Silvis on new postage stamp

State Rep. Tony McCombie and State Sen. Neil Anderson are announcing a community-wide effort to feature Hero Street in Silvis on a new U.S. postage stamp.
While just a block and a half long, Second Street (Hero Street) in Silvis is the home of more than 100 men and women who served in the U.S. Military. There is no other street of similar size in the country that has contributed as many men and women in service to our country. Of the more than 100 men and women who served, eight were killed in action, either during World War II or the Korean War.
Joining them were Maria Mier Llaca, a board member from the Greater Quad Cities Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Community Affairs Chairperson for the League of United Latin American Citizens Council 10, Augustine Ruiz from the U.S. Postal Service, and family members of loved ones who lived on Second Street. Leaders from local veterans organizations and Latino organizations were also in attendance.
