A 75-year-old U.S. Army veteran found not guilty of illegally placing an American flag at a VA facility in West Los Angeles told Fox News on Thursday he would do it again in an instant.

“It would be so anti-American not to,” and Bob Rosebrock told “Fox & Friends.” He added, “In the military, we defend that the American flag, and if we don’t have that freedom, then we don’t have America anymore.”
Each flag — about the size of a napkin — appeared outside the VA facility on Memorial Day 2016; at least one was attached to a fence. Rosebrock said that the flags “in honor of the veterans who have served in our country over the past 240 years, and also in honor of the veterans who were in VA trying to heal of the defense of the American flag.”

The felony indictment against him: the view of non-approved “placards” on a VA property, a charge that could have sent him to prison for six months, City News Service reported. However, the magistrate Judge Steve Kim found that the plaintiffs are not the evidences to prove their case.
There was no immediate reaction from the U. S. Attorney’s office.
“Now that the court has rightly dismissed the government’s outrageous flag-the display of the indictment against Mr. Rosebrock, we hope that he and his fellow patriots will be allowed to take the honor of the flag and the remembrance of their fellow veterans as they deem appropriate,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton responded.
