90 Year Old Medal of Honor Recipient Retired Army Col. Van T. Barfoot Allowed to Keep US Flag Flying
The story of a real American hero and his victory …
90 year old Van T. Barfoot, a Medal of Honor recipient and retired Army Col. is allowed to keep flying his American flag on his 21 foot flag pole. I am glad to see we still live in America.
A 90-year-old Medal of Honor recipient can keep his 21-foot flagpole in his front yard after a homeowner’s association dropped its request to remove it, a spokesman for Democratic Virginia Sen. Mark Warner said Tuesday.
The Sussex Square homeowners’ association likewise has agreed to drop threats to take legal action against retired Army Col. Van T. Barfoot, Warner spokesman Kevin Hall said.
The association had threatened to take Barfoot to court if he failed to remove the pole from his suburban Richmond home by Friday. It had said the pole violated the neighborhood’s aesthetic guidelines.
Personally this home owners association and every member on it can go #%@% them self. As stated at the Jawa Report, Col. Van T. Barfoot has earned the right to fly any American flag he wants on any size flag pole he wants. The service that this man has provided to this country is more than the petty trivialness of some association board member with a Napoleon complex.
From Hot Air … A Happy Ending and watch the video of the story of retired Col. Van T. Barfoot.
Heroes like this should be honored, especially in their later years of life, not have their stones broke by PC Americans. The people on this association owe this man a debt of gratitude, not trying to take away his freedoms that he put his life on the line for in serving in the US Army.
KUDOS to Col. Van T. Barfoot’s victory!
