Meet JP Meehan of Greenport. 

On his way to school Thursday, the 6-year-old noticed a flag that had been blown to the ground during the overnight nor’easter. Instead of just driving past it, he asked his mother to pull over.

He got out of the car and picked up the wet flag from the ground.

Then he continued on his way to school.

“His father served in Iraq,” JP’s mom Patricia Eckardt wrote in an email to The Suffolk Times. “He is very proud of his father and country.”

JP’s father served in the Army.
