Flag Man is looking for donations

Posted by Geeky Swedes on June 30th, 2008

Each “flag-appropriate” holiday, the man on the corner of 32nd and 57th decorates his yard. On Memorial Day, it was covered in red, white and blue:

But as “tinyviking” said in comments on the Memorial Day post, someone tried to vandalize the display and steal firefighter helmets. And according to our anonymous email tipster, the man’s flags always get stolen. Instead of quitting his tradition, he’s now asking the community for help donating patriotic items for this year’s 4th of July display. This sign is in his yard…

We can’t wait to see it!
