Loren Vincent has been proudly displaying his American flag in front of his home in Turlock, CA for fifteen years. To him the flag is more than a symbol of America, it's a tribute to family.
“It represents three different families,” Nance said. “The eagle on top represents Loren’s brother-in-law, who was in the Navy in World War II. USMC represents the Marine Corps, which is Loren. And then on the back of the flag pole it says ‘Dad 313965’ that represents my dad’s serial number in World War II.”
“They have the right to buy a flag and burn it,” he said. “They don’t have the right to come onto my property and take it down and burn it.”
Nance immediately bought Vincent a new one, and the flag flies again at his home.
“It’s not just a veteran, because we’re no better than anybody else, any red-blooded American would feel the same way: we would fight for that flag and die for it,”
It's sickening how people think it's okay to do things like that. They live in America and wouldn't be able to live their snobbish – probably liberal – lifestyles without the men and women who fought and died for American freedom. While no other reports of flag vandalism have been reported, Vincent has since replaced the flag, and it flies once again.
