I think I have officially seen it all.
A few weeks ago, a veteran was told he could no longer fly an American flag at his apartment. Yes, you read that right.
This story was received with a fair amount of contempt, as you might imagine, and my coworker did an outstanding job covering it.
In order to fully grasp the reason for the newest column I have posted, you may want to read the backstory.
- The story started when the veteran was asked to take his American flag down from its display at his apartment.
- After the ensuing public outcry the owner of the apartment, also a veteran, apologized and allowed the flag to fly again.
