Vets of U.S.S. Intrepid present flag vigilante with a flag of his very own

Put away that turkey, kids. This year it’s red meat for Thanksgiving!

Veterans who served on the U.S.S. Intrepid aircraft carrier presented Jim Brossard with a certificate and flag for cutting down a Mexican flag that was flying over a U.S. flag at a Reno bar.

“To fly the American flag underneath the Mexican flag, it just defies everything,” said Wayne Erven, West Coast representative of the U.S.S. Intrepid Association Inc. “Our flag goes on top. That’s the honor we give our flag.”…

Brossard said he has no regrets.

“If I hadn’t done that then I’m afraid it wouldn’t have gotten done,” he said. “I was ready and fully willing to accept any consequences, legally or any other, that might have come in my direction.”

Go on. Relive the magic. You know you want to.
