DePue man keeps Memorial Day tradition alive
DEPUE – Although Frank Montez of DePue is no longer the VFW commander, he could still be found in the cemetery days before Memorial Day placing flags near the headstones of buried veterans.
Since he first became VFW commander in 1996, he and his wife, Inez, have carried on the well-known community tradition.
“It gives me honor to put them on the graves,” Frank, who is a Korean War veteran, said.
