The photo was snapped as he was picking it up and looking at the bracket from which it fell.

JT was traveling down Front Street Friday morning when he spotted one of the American Flags on the sidewalk.  He was in the process of stopping when this man came around the corner on foot, picked up the flag, dusted it off and was attempting to put it back up as JT drove on by.

Thank you to this man for doing his patriotic duty!
