What These Firefighters Did for 97-Year-Old Military Widow is Pure Awesomeness

One of the most beautiful things about America is the spirit of love for one’s neighbor that permeates much of our culture. You might not notice all of the small acts of kindness that happen on a daily basis, mostly because these days the interactions we see between people largely happen online.

However, human decency is still alive and well, the reports of its demise being greatly exaggerated. In fact, a story that’s making it’s way around the Internet right now is proving that point to be a true.

A 97-year-old military widow was unable to raise a new flag at her residence and requested the help of local firefighters. They happily obliged.

The woman said she “wanted to raise a new United States flag but her rope needed to be repaired,” the Portland Fire Department explained in a Facebook post on Tuesday.

Firefighters carried out repairs and raised Old Glory. As they got to work, the helpers learned about the woman’s family history.

“While assisting her, the crew learned that her late Husband was a Pearl Harbor Veteran,” the department explained. “It was a pleasure to assist you with this necessary repair and to learn about your husband.”

Fire officials included a few photos in the post, including one of the red, white and blue flag waving in the wind.

The post has received more than 3,000 reactions and 300 comments as of Wednesday night.

This is so awesome.

Isn’t it great to know that good people still exist in our nation? It so easy these days to feel discouraged by the division in our country, thanks in large part to the extreme hostility of the left — and yes, some on the right too.

However, all is not lost. Not by a long shot. In fact, there’s a whole lot of good in this burned out berg that we need to keep fighting for each and every day.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
