A El Paso security camera caught Gustus Bozarth rescuing the American flag, which had fallen in a storm. The videotape showed Mr. Bozarth in a driving rain, carefully folding the flag military-style, on the hood of a pick-up truck, and then leaving it and the pole in a safe place on the property. Across the country, people are responding to his plight and offering help. See the video below.
KFOX14 quotes Bozarth:
It's a small respect, folding the flag like that," he said. Bozarth said he learned to fold the flag when he worked as a security officer in Tampa, FL.WoundedTimes says Gustus lives in the back of a warehouse just feet from where the fallen flag was found.
