A retired U.S. Army chaplain is prepared to go to court to fight to fly the American flag on a flagpole on his front lawn.
Fred Quigley, 77, of Macedonia, Ohio, a minister who served active duty during the Vietnam War, has been told by the homeowners’ association that his flagpole violates the property rules.
The HOA rules state that a flag can only be displayed if affixed to the home, but that would mean Quigley would have to remove the flagpole and put up a smaller flag.
“They said that I would have to downsize,” Quigley told Fox News in an interview, and downsize he did. He now has a 14-foot flagpole flying a 3 foot by 5 foot flag on his front lawn, that he says “fits with the decor.” His previous flagpole was 20 feet high.
