STRUTHERS, Ohio (WKBN) – A flag pole was knocked down and American flags were missing from the Struthers AMVETS post on Friday night.
It’s a major disappointment for Jan Brown, post 44 commander, who says the area was set to be a small memorial to honor veterans that have passed away.
Brown says AMVETS will replace the flags and the pole but have to pay for it using money set aside for community projects.
“I’m not angry, but I’m very disappointed that someone would do that,” she said. “I think that it shows disrespect for what we’re trying to do here and just America in general. Who steals an American flag?”
This isn’t stopping Brown from giving American flags to community members.
