Queens councilman helps to replace Glendale family’s vandalized American flag


Councilman Robert Holden helped replace a local family’s American flag that was vandalized in Glendale last week after it was ripped down and left on the sidewalk.

The Pardue family has been putting up the American flag on 84th and Myrtle Avenue in front of their house for about four years. 

This year, Robert Pardue and his friends put the flag up on Memorial Day, and on June 6, the flag was torn down, ripped up and left on the sidewalk. A neighbors home security camera was able to catch it on video. The video shows a man on a bike tearing the flag down and leaving it.
