honoring our veterans

"This project is a wonderful example of the strong community partnership we have in Montebello." This was a labor of love done in memory of my father, Roy Romero a World War II Veteran. It was to honor all veterans, past, present and future."


Montebello Culture and Recreation Commissioners Vivian Romero and John Paul Garcia are among those spearheading the effort to give the veterans’ memorial a makeover.
