The American Red Cross, Southwestern NY Chapter recently received a United States flag from Korean War veteran Peter Carlo of Jamestown. Carlo received a Purple Heart while in service and is a past commander of the Disabled American Veterans Post 47.
Carlo purchases flags from U.S. Representative Brian Higgins' office and then donates the flags free of charge to various organizations throughout the area as a service to his community. "We are very much honored to receive this flag from Mr. Carlo," said Bill Tucker, Chapter Executive Officer. "I am grateful for his service to our country."
