Flags damaged on Veterans Day
We later found out from the Lions Club that two of the flags hanging on Elliott Bay Brewery were ripped from their brackets and damaged at some point during the day.
The group puts up the flags at sunrise on federal holidays and takes them down at sunset.
When they returned to Elliott Bay to gather the flags on Veterans Day all that remained were broken brackets on the side of the building. The two flags were later found but the eagles on top of the poles were smashed and the wire holding the flags to the poles was damaged.
"This was the first time we every had anything like that happen," said a member of the organization.
