Virginia high school students and their principal proudly showed support for the American flag after getting backlash for waving Old Glory from the backs of some of their cars.
Students at Mills E. Godwin High School in Henrico County started hanging American flags on their cars to show support for their fellow classmates enrolling in the U.S. military, WRIC reported.
A few students, however, weren’t too happy to see the stars and stripes in the school’s parking lot, Godwin senior Joseph Baskette said.
“Freedom isn’t free,” Baskette told WRIC. “We know what it takes, we know what it costs and we are very thankful that these students are signing up to go and fight for us.”
