CORPUS CHRISTI Why would anyone steal a U.S. flag from a war memorial?
And just days before the Fourth of July?
"That's the flag. It's in our schools, our hospitals, our government buildings," said Vietnam veteran Ram Chavez. "It's draped over the casket of those who've died defending this country."
For the past three years, the city has depended on Chavez, founder of the Veterans Band of Corpus Christi, and the group's members to lower the U.S. flags at the city World War Memorial in a brief, but respectful ceremony when the flags become worn and to replace the flags with new ones.
When they arrived Saturday at the memorial near Corpus Christi Cathedral, one of the two flags was missing...

Here’s what they should do...Without any media or fanfare, they should get someone to donate security cameras that are hidden...THEN, when they catch the perp..
Slam his face ALL over media!!!
Shame the SOB!
I agree, look to the south or the middle east of us for the perp
If and when the creature who did this is caught a bunch of Veterans need to take him somewhere private and beat the everlovin’ crap out of him (or them!).
It is typical for a conquering people to remove the symbols once revered by the vanquished. Perhaps that is the reason the flags were taken down.
Yours is a much better idea.
Texas Ping. Someone is stealing the brass flower vases in our cemetery here in Eureka including the Veterans side. I drive by every couple of weeks to check on my sister and her husband’s markers...
POST ARMED GUARDS. Let nature take its course.
I’m 18 miles away and I Vow to find the losers that did this.
If the Losers that stole that Flag checks FR they should know this ... “You” will PRAY that the Cops find you before I do... and when I find you ... the Cops can’t (probably wont) help you.
ATT: Hooter’s, Knucklehead’s, Coyote’s, Backwoods, VFW, American Legion, Backwoods, Silver Dollar, Judy’s, Bonnies, Warf keep ears open for lil braggarts ... save some scraps for me.
It might be more appropriate to slam his face all over the concrete.
Any Marxist indoctrination camps (oops I meant colleges;) in the area? First place I’d look for suspects.....

Naw I wouldn’t think that... not here.
Then again ... they wouldn’t give me permission to Recruit for the Army, Navy or Marine Corps.. (I did it anyway) ... although the Coast Guard seems to get a Pass (just an observation Coasties)
It was stolen by some lefty scumbag who hates the US more than anything else.
If they catch the person/persons who did this, they should be made to wear a sign stating their crime in front of a Military recruiting station.
Where is Johnson and his mob of petty vandals and theives-and why would I be reminded of this now? No mention of undocumented Democrats chanting their patriotic “the Red, the White, the Blue we spit on you! As they entertain passers by.
Nope it probably wasn’t nothin’ like the Johnson raid Nope it probably was just some poor joe who lost his job in the worst recession ever and couldn’t afford to buy his own flag to honor his president and the Democratic Party on the 4th.
They did that here too, over 200 of them.
Probably not a foreign national or an enemy of our country, odds are they actually had family members that served.
