Iraq Veteran's Stolen Flag Returned

KHQ.COM - After a week without their American Flag the Worley family has it back at their north Spokane home. Just before 10 p.m. Monday night the person that stole it returned the flag to its original spot. This all started a week ago when the family went out of town for the 4th of July. When they returned, their flag was gone.

"We weren't really sure at first what happened, but we came to soon realize that it had just been taken," said Theresa Worley. For the Worley family the flag had a lot of value. "The American Flag that we had flown wasn't something that we had just bought at the grocery store. This is a flag that my husband, when he served in Iraq for our country, that he had flown there at the base," said Theresa Worley.

Her husband, Shawn, is an Air National Guardsman. "No matter what your military you go into, whether it Marines, Army, Navy, or Air Force, for me it's just something I felt I had to do to make the country better," said Shawn Worley. After realizing they had flag their flag stolen, they knew they had to do something. "We talked about it, and thought about it jokingly, about putting a sign out, and then I thought well, let's put a sign out there," said Theresa Worley. So they did.

A sign that reads: "To the person that stole our flag. The flag was flow in Iraq as I fought for your freedom. Please return."  And it now appears whoever did this, got the message, loud and clear.
