@FedEx good on your driver stopping the flag burning. Give that man a raise and an extra weeks paid vacation!— Matt Grosso (@MGrosso8) January 27, 2017

I applaud @FedEx for standing behind driver Matt Uhrin. What he did was right and American.— Pastor Greg Locke (@pastorlocke) January 28, 2017
We have reviewed the matter in Iowa City involving driver Matt Uhrin. He remains a FedEx employee & we have no plans to change his status.— FedEx (@FedEx) January 28, 2017
