Arizona police officer rescues American flag: Shelly Montes Wiki, Bio

Footage of a Peoria, Arizona police officer returning a run-away American flag has gone viral, and the officer and Air Force veteran herself, Shelly Montes, told “Fox & Friends Weekend” it was an act of honor.

“It is a sense of honor for me as a military veteran,” he said. “It is a pride for me. “Seeing the flag on the ground is painful.”

The wind blew the flag from her post where Montes, patrolling neighborhoods through the night, found it, rolled it up, and placed it on a patio chair by the owner’s door. Montes said this incident occurs “quite often” during the monsoon season.

 

During a time of hostility against the forces of order, Montes proposed that officers remain patriots with small gestures such as saving flags.

 

“It’s a sense of pride, and it’s a sense of pride for many officers,” she said. “And I know I’m not the only officer doing this … It is a sense of honor for our country and for those of us who have served and continue to serve our community.”

 

Montes said she did not know the cameras were recording her act of kindness and only found out later through Facebook. She said she has yet to meet the owner of the flag.
