Thank you on behalf of vets
We would like to thank Gabe and Eloise Valentino for their extremely generous donation to the Montevideo Flags of Honor.   

A special thank you to all their customers who contributed their coins to “The Wishing Pig”at Valentino’s restaurant for this cause.    

On behalf of the veterans and their families, we thank you for your continued support to this attractive display of patriotism in our community.

Anyone wishing to make a donation to the Flags of Honor can leave your donation at the Montevideo VFW  or the American Legion.
