A very special flag has been returned to its rightful owner.
An american flag was stolen from a pole outside the home of Nancy Linn Nellis. The regimental flag had been given to her after her husband, Major Herbert Elliott Jr. passed away.
People throughout the area were outraged.
Fortunately, a friend found the flag on a dirt road atop Fletcher Hill, and after seeing our report, he knew where it belonged.
The man who returned it didn’t want the $650 reward that was raised by community members. He was just happy to return it.
Nancy says she’s not sure if she’ll continue to fly the flag outside.
