Major Brent Taylor Foundation searching for large stolen flag
OGDEN, Utah — The Major Brent Taylor Foundation is asking for help finding a stolen flag.
“My first reaction was, who did this? Like, who hates us? Who hates America? Who stole our flag?” said Major Brent Taylor Foundation founder and director Jennie Taylor.
The flag is giant, 30 x 60 feet. The flag is used by the Major Brent Taylor Foundation during parades and to honor fallen soldiers, firefighters and police officers.
Taylor said they’d stored the flag this weekend in a Dewalt case that was in a locked trailer. But on Saturday they found the lock broken and the flag and case gone.
“I’m hoping it was just someone looking for some cash, something they could sell quickly and just a bad theft incident,” Taylor said.
Taylor is hoping whoever took it will leave it somewhere for people to find. She asks for tips if anyone knows or sees anything.
“The fundraising we do is very sacred and important to us. And we’d love to not have to spend that same amount of dollars to replace something that’s been taken,” Taylor said.
The Major Brent Taylor Foundation was founded after the death of Major Taylor in Afghanistan in 2018.
