STRUTHERS, Ohio -

It doesn't have to be Veteran's day to honor the valley's bravest.

Hundreds of local veterans were treated to lunch Tuesday compliments of the Mahoning County Board of Developmental Disabilities.
It was a day to bring people together and thank them for all they have done for our country.

"It's a way for our board to say thanks to the veterans of the valley because we the board of the office of Developmental Disabilities obviously we receive a lot of support from our community and March is DD awareness month. We thought this would be a way to bring awareness to what veterans have done," said Superintendent MCBDD, Bill Whitacre.

The guest of honor was Murle McLaughlin, a 91 year old Navy vet from Lake Milton who witnessed the famous raising of the US flag on Iwo Jima in 1945.
