A Vietnam veteran in Florida reportedly must remove an American flag from his apartment window or management officials will take it down for him.
Carlisle Vereen, of Daytona Beach, told Central Florida News 13 that “patriotism” led him to tape the paper flag to the inside of his apartment window last Thanksgiving. No complaints were received at the time, he said.
Officials at Manatee Bay Apartments, however, recently issued a notice to a “dumbfounded” Vereen indicating that the flag needed to be removed from the window within 24 hours or “they will be disposed of by Management,” CFNews13.com reports.
The notice indicates that no signs are allowed on doors or windows. At least two of Vereen’s neighbors also display flags in their apartments, but neither told CFNews13.com that they have received notices to remove them.
Vereen, who could not be reached for comment on Friday, said he’s hired an attorney and will dispute the order.
