Officials to replace five stolen flags


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Erie County officials will replace five flags stolen from Buffalo’s Naval and Military Park, on Friday.

Someone took three United States flags, a POW, MIA flag and a Marine Corps flag sometime late Wednesday or early Thursday. Police are still looking for the culprits.

There is a salute to the few and the proud on Friday, because it’s US Marine Corps Week. The opening ceremony is happening at 1 p.m. at the USS Little Rock. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
