Veteran Wakes Up On Memorial Day To See Someone Burned His Flag
Posted by Casey on May 27, 2009
Earlier I posted about the Texas woman who was forced to take down her “offensive” American flag she displayed for Memorial Day. She is also a blue star mother.
Today I noticed a story in my local news about a veteran who woke up on Memorial Day to find that his flag had been burned by a vandal.
It’s one Las Vegas man’s yearly Memorial Day tradition: flying his American flag. But what Charles Husband discovered early Sunday morning shocked and saddened him. The flag he so proudly displayed had been burned.
Since we brought you this story Sunday, several veterans came forward to donate their flags.
“I didn’t see it waving,” Husband explains. “I looked and it was burnt.”
It was a bad case of vandalism which turned into patriotism. “It symbolizes America – how beautiful it is,” said Husband.
When word got out that Charles Husband’s flag had been burned, veterans like Jeff Durbin were watching and took action. “I went on the website. I started looking for companies (that would) deliver (to him) rapidly… good quality.”
