Nevada trooper goes above and beyond after spotting flag abandoned on busy interstate

The trooper is also a veteran.

Nevada Trooper Flag

A Nevada Highway Patrol trooper took action after spotting an American flag lying on the shoulder of a busy interstate.

On October 3, the Nevada Highway Patrol shared dash cam video of how one of their troopers acted to honor the discarded flag.

They wrote:

Yesterday in Las Vegas a Trooper was northbound on the I-15 near Sahara when something in the left shoulder caught his eye. He circled back around and found an American Flag on this side of the road. The Trooper, who is also military veteran collected the flag and immediately brought the Stars and Stripes to a local American Legion Lodge. The American Legion took possession of the flag. They hold proper flag retirement ceremonies about every 6 months. Nevada Department of Public Safety 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 #honor #respect #duty #lasvegas #nhpsocomm
