NC man fighting for right to fly American flag on property
RIDGEVIEW, N.C. — A North Carolina Vietnam veteran says he could face fines of $100 a day for flying an American flag on his property.
WLOS reported that 75-year-old Al Borchardt started flying the flag atop a standard 20 foot pole on national holidays. He said he even started lighting it at night.
But said he was notified by the Homeowners Association that he’s breaking the rules, which state that only small flags attached to the house are allowed.
Borchardt said he will contact local legislators to try to get some help. He said he may move away if he is not allowed to fly his American flag.
