    Homeless Man Saves US Flag

    When the employees showed up to work at METI, Inc in El Paso, Texas, they were pleasantly surprise to find the company's Old Glory well taken care of after a heavy storm on Sunday.

    Instead of finding it blown away or a skewed on the ground, they found it neatly folded "military style" as well the flag pole placed off to one side. After checking their surveillance video they discovered how this happen.

    They watched as a homeless man, Gustus Bozarth walking by pick up the flag in the wind and rain and folded it neatly. When ask why Gustus replied "For American freedoms, freedom for America, freedom for a lot of Americans....."

    I just read the story that someone posted on my wall in facebook. I rushed over to post it on our forum but it looks like TLOG already beat me to it. LOL

    I give the guy my utmost respect.
