Tina Barritt stood in her north Spokane yard Friday morning clutching an American flag to her chest, tears streaming down her face, as she watched a crew put the finishing touches on her new flagpole. It was installed by a new nonprofit that provides free handyman services for disabled veterans. Check out S-R photojournalist Colin Mulvany's video of the event.
