RESPECT: Trash Collector Did Something to an American Flag That Made Him a Hero

Published on February 24, 2014

A video camera captured the moment when a garbage collector in Oregon salvaged an American flag that he found on top of a trash bin.

The man stopped what he was doing to fold up the flag properly, the way he learned in the Boy Scouts, and then left it at the door of the house.

A neighbor found out about the patriotic gesture and sent a thank you note to the trash company; the video was from the camera mounted on the truck and has gone viral.

We salute this young man’s not-so-common patriotism!
