County Executive Odell and Visiting Vet Exchange Gifts
Members of American Legion Post 270 were driving through Carmel last week checking on the condition of American flags displayed at various public sites. John Zacman, above left, paid a brief visit to County Executive MaryEllen Odell to suggest a replacement be obtained for the weather-worn flag at Spain Cornerstone Park. The next day, County Highway Department workers replaced the flag with a new one.
While in her office, Odell showed Zacman her collection of coins and historical pins and gave him a Putnam County Bicentennial pin. In return, Zacman presented Odell with his 1st Infantry Division cap.
