91-Year-Old Blind WWII Veteran Assaulted While Trying To Catch American Flag Vandals

A 92-year-old blind veteran was assaulted this week by a group trying to vandalize his flag, according to Fox News.

Howard Banks says he “tries to salute his flag” every morning. He was shoved from behind while doing so this week.

Check it out:

Banks said the vandals didn’t touch his U.S. Marine Corps flag, but did toss his ‘God Bless All Police’ sign across the yard.

He told responding officers that his flags have been vandalized in the past. Someone reportedly cut them down, shredded the American flag and threw the U.S. Marine flag in the ditch, but he never reported the crimes.

He is legally blind so he was not able to provide a good description of the suspects. He said he heard more than one person running away.

Banks was 18 when he joined the military during World War II.

He is extremely protective of the American flag.
