TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Two American flag collection bins are missing from their Tallahassee-area locations.

The bins were used to collect discarded flags that were donated for burial ceremonies of deceased veterans.

A Tallahassee funeral and cremation service collects the flags in 14 bins located throughout the region. The company's owner says whoever took the bins is showing disrespect to the country and to its veterans. He is asking for anyone with information about the thefts to help him recover the missing flags and bins.
