Marines Flag burned in His driveway

The American Flag flying in front of Marine Corps Veteran Loren Vincent's home was taken down and burned during the night. For 15 years Vincent has been flying the Flag with no issues. Now he wakes up to this. From CBS Sacramento:...“How can they do that? We served. We fought for that flag and men are dying for that flag,” he said.Vincent says he’s curious as to why his flag was targeted when he lives inside this court, and just outside, his neighbor has two flags flying and they were untouched.The flagpole is no ordinary lawn ornament. It’s a tribute made by Vincent and his neighbor, Air Force veteran Joe Nance.“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.”Vincent filed a police report.


“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.”See the full story at CBS Sacramento.
