Flag stolen in 1976 mailed back to New Hampshire

Source: AP-Excite

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) A bicentennial American flag that was stolen nearly 40 years ago from a park has been returned by a remorseful thief.

The flag was stolen in 1976 while the Weston Observatory in Manchester was being repaired. Someone climbed the scaffolding and snatched the flag at night, causing an uproar in the community, WMUR-TV reported (http://bit.ly/1wbMDzH).

The flag was recently mailed to the Manchester Historic Association from Arizona with a note of apology signed by "a flawed son of Manchester."

1. There were TONS of city flags stolen after 9/11....

 

Remember when it seemed like every store was sold out and every streetlamp had one?

China couldn't keep up with demand.

At least we don't see every SUV in town with one of those cheap plastic ones flapping to ribbons on the road.
