Veteran, FedEx driver stops to fold fallen flag: ‘It’s the Marine way’

One Marine veteran working as a FedEx driver in Maryland has made headlines and pulled the heartstrings of many in recent days, as he made an impromptu stop during his delivery shift to fold an American flag that had fallen to the ground.

On Nov. 28, Gail Cook of Ferndale shared video footage to Facebook, captured by her home’s surveillance camera. In the clip, a FedEx driver stopped to retrieve the American flag that landed on the ground after Cook’s flagpole had been pushed to the ground by high winds, Fox 13 reports.
