"That's the symbol of our country. They desecrated the symbol of our country," explained Turner.
Turner doesn't want the person or people responsible to face any charges. He wants something much simpler....
"I just want an apology and I want them to know this is not alright," Turner said, adding: "It's not just a flag to me. This is my heart. This is how my heart is made."
Since posting his video on YouTube he's gotten emails and Facebook messages from the United Kingdom, Africa, and people in places he says he's never even heard of.
“It's all been thank you for your service. And I put a smiley face next to it,” he said.
Turner never expected such a response and he certainly doesn't want donations or money, although he has now received at least 10 new flags from various organizations.
What he does want is respect for Old Glory.
"It's about patriotism. It's about doing what's right," Turner said.
Turner tells us vandals will never get to his flag again. He plans to put a flag pole right in the middle of his driveway and hang the flag 30 feet high. He plans to dedicate it to the city of Eminence.
