EASTCHESTER, N.Y. - Eastchester Town Hall is the new home of a pair of special gifts from two local veterans who fought overseas for their country.

To celebrate the sacrifices of American soldiers, Eastchester officials were presented with Prisoner of War-Missing in Action (POW-MIA) flags that were donated to the town from two longtime Sound Shore residents.

Eastchester resident Lawrence LaFredo offered the flag to Town Supervisor Anthony Colavita, courtesy of the Disabled American Veterans Chapter 16 in Greenburgh in a special ceremony over the weekend. A second flag was donated by former Westchester County Legislator Vito Pinto, who also serves as the head of the Veteran Affairs for Westchester County.

According to Colavita, the flags will be “flown proudly over Eastchester to honor those veterans who were Prisoners of War or are still Missing in Action.”
