Sanitation Worker Pulls American Flags From Trash to Properly Retire Them
He’s a New York City sanitation worker with a patriotic mission: Ed Shevlin gives tattered American flags a retirement worthy of the values that they stand for.
Shevlin began his campaign last Flag Day and has pulled 817 flags from the garbage in the past year.
“I do it because American flags deserve a better retirement than that which would be provided by the hopper of a garbage truck,” he said on “Fox and Friends.”
Shevlin, who uses his Facebook page to disseminate information on proper flag handling, today showed the hosts of “Fox and Friends” how to retire Old Glory.
