A veteran proudly displaying his American flag in front of his Turlock home found someone set the flag ablaze and left the burned pieces on the ground for him to find.
For 15 years, the flagpole on Loren Vincent’s front yard always had an American flag on it. But on Monday morning, he says it was gone.
“I looked out Monday morning, got my newspaper and saw the flag wasn’t here. I thought maybe it blew away,” he said.
It didn’t. Instead, its remains were left on the ground as the plastic flag was burned and melted into the driveway.
