A Ladoga woman is trying to locate a flag that was stolen from her home before the Fourth of July. Tammie Wethington had placed the flag in her front yard near her mailbox because she could not afford a pole that was large enough to support the flag.
The flag had belonged to Harvey Atwater who had served in the United States Navy.
“When he died, he left me his flag. They folded it up off his casket, the preacher went three rows back to me and hand delivered it,” she said. “This flag was very, very special.”
Wethington said she met Atwater when she moved to Charleston, S. C., and they became best friends. He called her “girlfriend” and she called him “old fart.”
“He didn’t have any children or anything, and my dad had passed away,” she said. “So, we became like a father and daughter.”
According to Wethington, she called 4-1-1, which is the local directory assistance in the U.S., after it was taken. She said was given a phone number to the White House.
“They pick up the phone, and they say, ‘This is the White House and President Donald Trump and all that,’” she said. “I said I wanted to talk to Donald Trump. They said, ‘Well, uh, uh, uh,’ and I said this has got to do with veterans.”
