Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — Operation MOM will be flying a flag presented to the group by Captain Doheny, Headquarters Company, Regimental Combat Team 1 in Iraq in Saturday´s Mother Lode Round Up Parade.

Co-Chair Pat Padavana has received a flag that flew in Iraq and a certificate of appreciation for the support Operation MOM has shown military personnel in Iraq.

Padavana feels the flag and the citation are really a “thank you” to all of those who have donated items to Operation MOM in behalf of U.S. Troops. 88 boxes of “goodies” from Tuolumne County were recently sent to Doheny´s Marines.

Operation MOM sends clothing, toiletry items, CD´s, DVD, hard candies and other non-perishables to military personnel on a regular basis. The group also accepts cash donations that are utilized for postage.

Operation MOM´s will be entry #54 in tomorrow´s parade which starts at 10am.
