Thief Returns 9/11 Firefighter's Flag With Apology
HUNTINGTON STATION, N.Y. (AP) — An American flag stolen from the family of a firefighter killed on Sept. 11 has been returned with a note that says: "I am so sorry, I had no idea."
NBC New York (http://nbcnews.to/1mX5kMh) reports that the flag was returned Thursday. It has resumed flying on the porch of Melissa Brengel's home in Huntington Station on New York's Long Island.
Brengel's brother, Jonathan Ielpi (eye-EHL'-pee), was 29 when he died at the World Trade Center in 2001.
