Regarding the letter ("A Marine's disrespect for others' rights") published on April 3 about Brandon Estes and how he was disrespectful to Don Vance: I don't care how many American flags you buy, you can't own an American flag. That flag has been paid for over and over again by the blood of our founders, our brothers and our sisters in arms.
If you want a flag to disrespect, then make your own. I suggest you use colors that are chameleon, as yours will change with the wind.
It was a lucky day when Brandon Estes came along and had the respect for not only his flag but for a fellow veteran who forgot that the flag is as sacred as family to most Americans. Vance should shame us some other way.
