My name is Jory Masterman and I have been a lifelong Dixon resident and a Navy veteran.
I recently received a phone call stating that someone tore down my American flag, threw it on the ground and tore the pole as well. This is very disheartening to me because as stated above, I served 5 years in the U.S. Navy and this flag means so much to me.
I understand that people have different political beliefs and feelings toward the flag, but at the end of the day, it’s still my property that needs to be respected. I hope that the person who did this understands that people are able to hold different beliefs, but we must continue to respect others and their beliefs in order to have a democracy.
