PEMBROKE, Mass. (AP) - A Pembroke woman says she was “angry and hurt” when a U.S. flag that had draped the casket of her Marine Corps veteran father was stolen.

But Nancy Brewer is willing to forgive now that the flag has been returned.

Brewer tells The Patriot Ledger (https://bit.ly/1jJ6lqO ) she hadn’t flown the flag since her father, a World War II veteran, died two decades ago. She flew it at a neighbor’s house across the street starting on Father’s Day, which would have been her father’s 100th birthday, so she could see it.

It disappeared Friday. The neighbor made a Facebook plea for its return, and on Sunday someone who said he knew the thieves went to police with the flag.

Brewer called the theft a “drunken prank” and decided not to press charges.
