The funeral home reported on this alleged event on its Facebook page.
“On the night of July 4th, someone pulled up 21 American flags that lined the roadway to our Veterans Mausoleum and had the nerve to burn them, yes burn them, on the lawn right in front of where our Veterans and their families rest in peace.”

“They noticed the flags were missing. When they did an inspection of the cemetery, they noticed that, in this spot, there were approximately 21 of 30 flags that were laying burned,” McDougald Funeral Home owner Doug McDougald said, according to WSPA.
“We can replace the flags, its just the hurt of those families who have had people buried there and to find they had burned 21 flags, it really disappoints you,” he added, according to Fox Carolina.
