Association's Flag Removal Request Upsets Veteran
A Reston, Va., couple say they won’t remove an American flag flying from their mailbox, despite a request by their community association to take it down. One of the homeowners said that, as a Navy veteran, he believes strongly in the country’s flag and is disregarding the “poorly written” letter informing the couple that the flag violated community rules. The letter also asked the couple to trim overgrowth on their property. The Fairfax, Va.-based management company that sent the letter asserted that it was only doing what the board of directors asked it to do.
