Dick Caldwell is the Veterans Service Officer, Norwell. He can be reached in the town hall at 781-659-8004.
Generally he is there Wednesday and some Wednesday evenings. Appointments can be made for Thursday and Friday. Otherwise leave a message on the answer machine.
Our American Legion Post 192 is the only Veterans organization in Norwell and they have provided us with Blue and Gold Star window flags.
They are available to any Norwell family who has a member presently serving in the Military and to any Company or Firm that has lost an employee to the military.
There is a box outside his office, just to the left of the front door of the Town Hall, for your torn and tattered flags.
If deposited there they will be disposed of in a patriotic manner either by the VFW or our Boy Scouts.
