Anonymous Person Returns Historic American Flag Taken During Riots
“A woman in Reno, Nevada, got an unexpected delivery … after a piece of American history went missing.”
“When an American flag from the U.S.S. Reno disappeared from Reno City Hall over the weekend due to rioters breaking into the building and smashing its display case, staff members were devastated, according to News 4. ‘The men of the U.S.S. Reno were credited with shooting down five enemy airplanes and assisted in the downing of at least two more at Iwo Jima,’ the report said.”
“The flag, on loan from the Department of the Navy, was an irreplaceable piece of the nation’s history and was feared to have been destroyed by fire. However, when News 4 Content Manager Kenzie Margiott arrived at work on Tuesday, a box with her name written on it was there waiting.”
“‘I have an upcoming birthday, so I thought maybe a family member or friend sent a gift to the station,’ she wrote. I opened the package with extreme caution, and inside I found a tattered flag with a manila tag labeled, ‘85-55-A USS Reno CL-96’ and handwritten note in Sharpie that read, ‘Needed protecting. Looters were flag burning. R.I.P George Floyd.’”
