Thieves Steal Air Force Veteran's American Flag — 9 Times



Thieves Steal Air Force Veteran's American Flag — 9 Times

It's déjà vu all over again for a retired Air Force brigadier general who has had his American flag stolen nine different times, according to

Last Friday night was the latest incident in which thieves swiped 87-year-old Archie Mayes' flag, along with the pole it was hoisted on. But they didn't stop there: They broke a window in Mayes' workshop. Nothing was taken.

"I do not know if somebody does not like my flag, or they know I'm military and resent that, or if they are just plain mean," said the three-war veteran.

Mayes captured images of the cold-hearted bandits on video camera, which he set up in October, and has turned the tapes over to police in Bedford. An investigation is under way.
So far, no suspects have been nabbed. Mayes believes the same person or people are responsible for all nine flag thefts.

“If you really want to know how I feel … If I had a shotgun with buck shot in it, I’d have shot him in the butt,” Mayes said. “And I wouldn’t have any hesitation.”,2933,327547,00.html

I am continually amazed at the stupity people go to just to be mean. This veteran should be honored for his service, not harassed.

ANON.--I agree. The leftwing nuts that are doing this are an absolute disgrace. I wish it was in Colorado where he could Make Their Day!

I wonder why those cowardly little S.O.B.'s DO hate the military so much!

This is not an isolated incident. When you plant poison ivy, poison ivy grows. This is what happens, when for almost twenty years feckless twits like this have been dumbed down and brainwashed in the governemt schools into believing America is the problem in the world, patriotism means ''racism'' and George Bush is a Nazi. Constant de-construction and bebasing Americas values and its uniqueness as humanitys only real hope and this is what you get. No other nation on Earth tolerates its citizens doing such things. I really wonder what America is going to look like in fifteen or twenty years. By that time, the WW2 generation will be gone and the values they held, though flawed as any generation sometimes are, the values of love of country, belief in an Almighty and that freedom comes from Providence, not politics, right and wrong and the belief that this nation was blessed by God to be the worlds best hope. To see this kind of sacralige and staggering disrespect by the young to the senior is appalling. Johnnymac.
