Comment: This flag was burned in the middle of the night. The perpetrator(s) show themselves to be cowards, afraid of the day. We’re getting to the point where it may be time to give the basement dwellers a taste of medicine far harsher than anything they’ve ever experienced in the miserable lives. Semper Fi….WFM

A Marine vet in Phoenix is outraged that someone would torch his American flag.
KPNX-TV reported Saturday that Brian Ellison found the burned remains of the flag in his driveway Wednesday morning. The flag was attached to the front of his home.
Ellison reported the vandalism to Phoenix police, who were investigating, the station reported.
Lisa Ellison told KTVK-TV that the look on her husband after he found the flag in the driveway was “like somebody shot him.”
“He just was devastated that somebody would do this,” she said.
Ellison and his wife live in a quiet neighborhood, according to KPNX.
“The flag means everything to me,” Ellison told the station. “When you say your oath and you join the military you stand in front of that flag when you raise your right hand. When we lose a service member or a veteran dies we put it on the casket.”
