My friend, Steve, will be deployed to Iraq in November. I put our beloved United States flag out for him and I told him I would bring it in when he returns.

Well, someone took care of that last night. They stole it off my front porch. Why aren't they going with him? Because they are cowards who go around taking stuff that doesn't belong to them while Steve and thousands of others are protecting people all over the United States and other countries.

I will put another flag out, but, I will put it out of your reach.
