Outraged military hero is standing his ground.

Army veteran Daniel Toner fought for our flag in the wastelands of Iraq.  Now that he’s home in Virginia, he is waging a different fight for our flag, the right to display it on his property.

The local neighborhood association where he lives has told him to take the flag down until he gets written permission to fly it.  It seems that installing a flag holder is in violation of the association bylaws, as it alters the face of the property.

Toner says that by imposing restrictions on the flag holder, you are imposing restrictions on the American flag itself.   The right to display the flag is protected in The Freedom to Display The American Flag Act of 2005.

Read the entire outrageous story below and watch Toner’s interview at the bottom of the page.

An Iraq War veteran says he has no plans to remove the American flag from his front porch after his homeowners association told him it has to come down…

…Toner told WAVY-TV he knew the homeowners association had certain regulations, so he contacted the property manager at Chesapeake Bay Management Inc. before he brought out the flag to make sure everything was above board.

He received an email back saying it was acceptable to fly a flag from his house as long as he followed the guidelines. But not long after, he received another message telling him to take it down…

…Toner was outraged…

…Management company president Dana Shotts-Neff said…because it’s considered an alteration to a home, residents need to apply for permission first.

Toner said that’s “absolutely ridiculous.”

“You shouldn’t even have to ask permission to have an American flag on your property,” Toner told WAVY.

He pointed out that the right to fly an American flag is one that Congress has specifically addressed…

…While the homeowners association sorts out its regulations, Toner said he has no plans to take down Old Glory.

“That flag is staying right where it is,” Toner said.
