Paramedic and artist makes wooden American flags to honor fallen officers

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- For more than a year, Zachary Smith has created wooden American flags for soldiers and politicians.

Now, he is building "Thin Blue Line" flags for two fallen metro Denver sheriff's deputies.

Under his company banner "U.S. Veteran Woodworks," Smith completed a flag for Douglas County sheriff's deputy Zackari Parrish and is just one for Adams County sheriff's deputy Heath Gumm.

Smith is a Veteran and EMT in Colorado Springs.
