A large American flag, hung on the front of Kings Park High School has been stolen.

You are right John! We should look all around for this flag. Some dumb kid who took it probably didnt take it home. I bet it is in one of the many areas near the KP Psych center where the kids hang out.

Lets have a quick fundraiser and replace the flag, how about keeping the flag up all year? It symbolizes what who we are everyday!

I saw the flag down a day or two after 9-11 and then saw it going up again by men on the roof. Then it was down the next day. Was wondering why I came down again so quickly..

MANY FLAGS HAVE BEEN STOLEN FROM VETERANS MEMORIALS OVER THE YEARS....ONE IN PARTICULAR, AT BURKE PARK IN ST JAMES, WHILE A SMITHTOWN PUBLIC SAFETY OFFICER WAS WRITING A SUMMONS CLOSE BY. I HAVE NO IDEA WHO THESE BANDITS ARE, OR THEIR REASONS FOR SUCH DISGRACEFULL BEHAVIOR.....BUT ONE THING IS FOR SURE, IF I WITNESS IT......SEMPER FIDELIS !!!
