GUARDSMEN RESCUE BURNING FLAG!!!

No one said anything to either man. No one gave an order, or even made a suggestion. But the two soldiers seemed to simply know what they had to do.

 

Maj. Lance Dell and Sgt. 1st Class Eric Allison of the Missouri National Guard rescued a burned American flag.

 

“They treated the flag like it was trash,” Allison said. “It’s not trash to us.”

 

In a demonstration on South Florissant Road in Ferguson on Dec. 4, several protesters wearing Guy Fawkes masks lit an American flag on fire. After letting it burn for a bit, they let it drop to the wet ground.

 

At that point — it could have been one or two seconds, it might have been 30 — two Missouri National Guardsmen in combat gear crossed into the fray of South Florissant.

 

With as much tenderness as can be mustered when covered in riot gear and hit by angry insults, Dell and Allison picked up the remains of the flag off the street, folded as much of it as they could, picked up smaller, charred pieces of fabric and then walked it inside for safe keeping.
