If you have noticed the American flags flying on the streets in Montgomery, those are there because of the American Legion Post #79.

The Post donated several new replacement flags last week to the City of Montgomery. According to Corey Kotek, Post 79 Commander, the organization donated 25 flags for First Street, and replacements for the ones at the Montgomery Public Library, City Hall, and Memorial Park.

Next year, flags will be donated for Veteran’s Memorial Way, as part of a rotation.

“We’re going to alternate them every year,” said Public Works Supervisor, Chris Roemhildt.

Kotek said the flag donation is something the Legion has done for years. They also replace the eight flags at Veteran’s Memorial Park two times a year.
