Dick Cohen, a 90-year-old decorated World War II veteran, gets help from a neighbor replacing the U.S. flag that was burned on the pole outside his door over the Fourth of July weekend. Several flag desecrations, thefts and burnings have taken place recently in the West End townhouse community of Westridge. In a show of solidarity and support, the Seminary West Civic Association, which includes Westridge, has declared Saturday, July 15, as Neighborhood Flag Day. Residents across the city are encouraged to participate.
