UNREAL: What This Marine Veteran Did with the Flag on MEMORIAL DAY Got Him FIRED

When you see the reason why this veteran was fired from his job, your blood will boil. Are there any patriotic Americans out there who would like to offer this man who served our country a new job?

When Charlotte veteran Allen Thornwell lowered his employer’s American flag to half-staff on Memorial Day, he says he did not think to ask permission or consider the possibility that he had done anything wrong.

Instead, the 29-year-old former Marine, who served in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, says he was thinking about his country, the meaning of the holiday and his best friend, Geoff, another Marine who killed himself two years ago after returning stateside.

On Tuesday, Thornwell was fired. A manager at the placement service that arranged the vet’s job at Time Warner Cable in Charlotte told him that the company was disturbed by Thornwell’s “passion for the flag and (his) political affiliation.”

Thornwell also took his outrage to Facebook, naming Time Warner and posting a video.

Contacted this week, Thornwell said he remains in shock over what happened.

“I’m not even mad right now,” he says. “I don’t know what kind of moral compass you need to fire a veteran on Memorial Day for lowering the flag.”
