Man Who Stopped Flag Burning Should Be Admired

On. Jan. 27, a young man in Marion, Iowa, jumped out of his FedEx truck and stopped a group of protesters from burning two American flags. As I write this, FedEx leadership has not released information about the "disciplinary action" they will take against him, if any. I hope they don't cowl behind political correctness. Meanwhile, Fox News reported that the local American Legion there presented Matt Uhrin with a certificate of appreciation.

Matt said it was something he simply had to do. "A lot of people just see it as a flag," he said. "I see it as my brothers and sisters who never came home."

I hope I would have the same courage that young man had by protecting our flag.

A person can go to a store and buy a gun, but if they shoot a Bald Eagle with it, that's punishable by federal and state laws, right?

A person can go to a store and buy an American flag, but if they throw it to the ground and burn it, that's freedom of speech, right?

I humbly disagree.

The eagle and the flag are national treasures, symbolic of our country and our freedom. The first is not to be harmed or captured; the latter is not to be desecrated. The eagle is God-given. The American flag is man-made, and although we can purchase one today, historically it is paid for with millions of Americans' blood, life, and limb.

Both are inherent to all of us, and should be equally honored, respected, defended and protected, right? Or, am I just crazy?

Sincerely,

LuAnne Douthat

Flamingo Circle

Greeneville

Editor's Note: FedEx officials later released a statement saying Matt Uhrin was still a FedEx employee and that the company had no plans to change his employment status.
