Came across this from the MSN news feed, story attributed to Fox News:

 

 

"A Missouri police officer and Air Force veteran enlisted the help of the local fire department to fix an American flag that was accidentally hanging upside-down in Missouri on Saturday outside a local business.

Independence police Officer David Wehlermann was on patrol when he saw the flag's top attachment to the flagpole had broken off, "causing the whole flag to hang from the bottom improperly," police said in a Facebook post..

After he finished responding to a call, he contacted the business, but the managers said they would be unable to fix the flag until Monday, according to police. That's when the Air Force veteran took matters into his own hands, telling Fox News that couldn't "let it stay like that."

“They said they got a lot of angry calls from passersby about the flag upside down, so I called dispatch and requested that a ladder truck come out, and the great crew of Ladder 2 came out and fixed the flag,” Wehlermann said. "I love this country. I fought for it. It's the greatest nation in the Earth. It’s a symbol of freedom for the world, and I want it to be rightly displayed.”

Wehlermann comes from a family of veterans. He said his grandfather fought in World War I, while his father fought in World War II. His older brother is a Vietnam veteran, while his son is an Iraq War veteran."

 

I removed some links that were not relevant to the story.  When I first saw the picture associated with the story, which would not copy so that I could also post it here, I thought it was about someone who had intentionally flown the flag upside down in protest.  Thankfully, it was only due to a failure of the upper part of the flagpole, as the story indicated.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
