With the keen eye of a police officer in Nevada, helped save a unique version of its former Glory, the shoulder of a busy Las Vegas-area freeway.

The Nevada Highway Patrol shared it on Facebook with a video of the moment when Trooper Jason Buratczuk, an air force veteran, pulled over on the northern lanes of Interstate 15 near Sahara Avenue on Oct. 2, after he was spotted with the American flag on the side of the road.

“It’s not just a piece of cloth. It is a symbol of our country,” he told FOX5. “People have bled and died for it.”

Government officials ask the board members place a flag on the side of the road and to not pick up on it as a result of safety concerns, but to get in touch with the national reform programme in place to an inside pick up.

For Buratczuk, whose father, brother, cousins, nieces, nephews, and grandparents all served in the armed Forces, the flag represents more than just the substance to be stitched out.

“Maybe we’d be better off if we have to take a minute and think about what the flag represents, and what it means for the people,” he told FOX5.
