Iowa reserve officer makes flag out of lumber for Dallas Police

Posted: Updated:

An Iowa reserve officer created a memorial in honor of the five Dallas officers killed in the city last week.

The Michellville man made a flag out of reclaimed lumber. The flag has a thin blue line on it with each of the officer's names.

"I'm here and I can't jump in the car and go down give a hug or shake a hand, what I do here, was fitting; it's my way of showing we are thinking of them," Matt Cleverley said with the Michellville Police Department.

They will send the flag to the Dallas Police Department.

The man also made a flag for the Des Moines Police Department when two officers were killed in a crash earlier this year.
