Stolen American Flag Replaced

Old Glory is back where she belongs—flying proudly outside the south Chico house of Navy veteran Brian Austin.

“This is beautiful,” Austin said, holding the flag. “I just can’t believe the community would come together like this."

Less than 20 hours after Action News Now aired a story about an American Flag stolen from this Navy veteran, several people rallied to get him new flags.

Steve Heiser saw the story Tuesday night and brought Austin a flag Wednesday morning.

“We need to take care of our veterans,” Heiser said. “When something happens to them, and they get robbed like that, the community needs to step up and help out.”

All this support has Austin very proud to be an American.

“I'm overwhelmed to know that the community will come out and be there for a veteran,” he said. “I thank everybody from the bottom of my heart.”
