MARLBOROUGH – It was a busy few days this spring for Marlborough Veteran Russ Flagg.
First Russ appeared on Matty Sargent’s show “Veteran Voices” to talk about his time serving in Vietnam. On March 30, Russ and 100 other Vietnam Veterans were honored by the Kraft Family and New England Patriots for the 50th Anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War. Lastly Russ was honored by the Worcester Red Sox as the Veteran of the Game. Marlborough is proud to call Russ as one of our sons.
