Vet Ordered to "Take Down That Flag"

Veteran Ordered To
Remove Flag From Outside Home

Management Company Says
"Flag Displays Violate Policy"

Joe LeVangie, 88,said the EJL Management Company, that runs his subdivision, told all residents that their flags had to come down. The brackets for the flag poles were removed.
"I was madder than hell," he said. "Come to find out, it was the maintenance man who was told to do so."
