A group of high school students in Georgia spray-painted the American flag for fun.

After they talked to U.S. military veterans about what the flag means to them, they were left with tears in their eyes.


“Fox & Friends First” reports that the students spray painted an Americans flag.

The graffiti read, “Seniors 2k18!” and it eventually got the attention of the high school’s principal.

Heard County High School principal Brent Tisdale told Fox5, “I called Chief Hannah and said ‘Do you have any veterans working right now that can come talk to these kids?’ We had a couple of firefighters, police and took the boys into an empty room and let the vets explain to them what the flag means to them,.”

Nikki Culpepper said that two of them “had tears in their eyes” and that they apologized to the veterans.

They didn’t realize that they had offended people with their gesture, and they were very sorry. (RELATED: Disables WWII Vet Carried To His Wife’s Grave In Arlington Cemetery)
