The Boiling Springs American Legion replaced flags Wednesday that were vandalized last week.

People donated flags and money to the American Legion after vandals destroyed the display that adorned Highway 9 in Boiling Springs.

The group received enough donations to replace all the flags that were damaged and even replaced other flags, according to World War II veteran Joe Newell.

Newell helped hang the flags and applauded the community's support for helping replace the patriotic symbol.

Newell said one group donated 144 flags.

The flag display stretches nearly three miles along the stretch of Highway 9.

The individual suspected of vandalizing the flags has been arrested and charged with malicious injury to personal property, according to deputies.
