Veteran’s plea after sick theft
A war veteran has erected a heartbreaking sign out the front of his home after the bullet riddled Australian flag he took when serving in Vietnam was stolen.
The sign was spotted outside of a home in Hawthorne, Brisbane and a picture was shared to the Facebook group Meanwhile in Australia.
"Who ever stole my Australian flag please consider returning it. I have had it since South Vietnam 1965. Reward offered (it has 2 bullet holes in it)," the sign read.
Social media users were quick to share their disgust at the despicable act.
"How f***ing unAustralian … dog act," one person wrote.
"People have no respect anymore," another wrote.
One added: "It's just disgusting why would you steal a flag."
