    Allen Tullar said tenants are not allowed to fly flags at his apartment complex, so he was flying one on his truck instead.

    But sometime between midnight and 6 a.m. Sunday, a vandal set it on fire, causing cosmetic damage to his shiny red truck.  A window also cracked from the heat.

    Tullar said he is proud of his country and finds the act to be extremely disrespectful, but his patriotism wasn’t stopped by the vandal.  He got another flag, which is again flying from his truck Monday.
