THE WOODLANDS, Texas -- Dozens of small American flags that had been vandalized in The Woodlands have been restored.

About 30 flags had been set up for the family of Sonja Norman, who was waiting for her son to come back from the Marines, but someone broke most of the flag posts.

After seeing the report on Tuesday, a neighbor repaired most of the flags and planted them again.

Norman said it was a welcome sight as she returned home from work Wednesday afternoon.
