BALLWIN, Mo. (KSDK) - Flags stolen from a Ballwin veteran have been returned.

A few weeks ago we reported someone stole 100 flags from Korean War veteran Walter Schoenke over the 4th of July weekend. But they have returned at his door, along with an apology, and a letter thanking him for his service.

Schoenke's neighbors surprised him with 100 new flags shortly after the old ones were stolen. Now, he has 200 flags, and neighbors plan to help him place them around the neighborhood on Veterans Day.
