Student’s Bold Stand: Honored by American Legion for Refusing to Remove American Flag from Truck!

A high school student in Ohio is being honored for refusing to remove the American flag from his truck.

The American Legion is supporting East Central High School senior Cameron Blasek for standing up for what he believes in. WXIX reports Blasek refused to take down the flag from his truck when the school asked him to last week. On Wednesday, veterans gathered outside of the American Legion in Harrison to honor the high school student with the Red, White and Blue Award, along with $3,000 for his patriotism and courage. “All I ever wanted in the first place was just to fly the American flag on the back of my truck. I didn’t want anything more or less than that,” Blasek said. School officials had asked Blasek to remove the flag.

They told me that if I didn’t take it down, it could be seen as offensive to other students,” Blasek said. However, the following day, the school changed its mind, sending out a letter to parents and students, which reads in part: “After careful consideration and in recognition of the importance of the U.S. Flag as a symbol of unity and national identity, I am pleased to inform you that we are allowing the display of the U.S. flag by students in the East Central High School parking lot.
