Flag flies high over Retired Marine's home once again thanks to neighbors

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - A U.S. Flag is once again flying high over the Niagara Falls home of a Retired Marine.

A neighbor of Retired Marine Tony Yelen reached out to The Action Niagara Falls for help once she noticed the Marine's flag pole needed to be fixed.

Yelen tried fixing the pole himself but determined it was too dangerous and too costly.

The Action's post on Facebook quickly drew the attention of AG Services. The company then volunteered its time Wednesday morning to come out to the Love Canal neighborhood and fix the flag pole.
