Humble Trash Collector: Patriot

Okay Sweet friends.

This made my day. What do y’all say?

You can see the video at this link friends:
This Humble Trash Collector Did Something to an American Flag That Made Him a Hero

An Oregon garbage collector was just going through his route when he saw that an American flag had been blown off its pole and scattered across a trash can.

While he could have just ignored it, he instead stopped what he was doing, properly folded the flag like he’d learned to do in Boy Scouts, and returned it to its owner.

Love this dude~!

    I hate to say this, but it is so sad that that is so notable.

    Its nice to see someone showing respect for the flag. Especially in today’s culture that looks and smells like this gentleman’s truck on a 100 degree summer day.

    Angel,
    Excellent find!

    Would that more Americans venerated our nation’s flag in such a manner!

    This guy rocks Angel. We need millions more just like him.

    Have a fabulous day my friend. Big hugs. :)

    If you have an old flag that is torn or just worn out don’t throw it away. Give it to your local American Legion Post and they will dispose of the flag with respect and dignity.

    and then let me know if the U S of A is not the REAL Gold Medal winner..
