The American flag has been under attack in recent days. There have been at least three incidences when old glory was either burned or taken down. Vandals burned a 92-year-old veteran’s flag to ashes outside his home in Nevada this week. William Barclay, a World War II veteran, walked out his front door Wednesday to find that several of his U.S. flags were either completely shredded or burned to ashes.

Rosebrock placed a pair of six inch flags on the fence of the Los Angeles Veteran Administration facility.
