90-Year-Old Medal Of Honor Winner Ordered To Take Down American Flag Pole

Col. Van T. Barfoot (ret) - a World War II hero is being ordered by his homeowner's association in Virgina to take down his flagpole because it violates association rules.

Smaller flags may be attached to buildings - but no free-standing flag poles are permitted.

The 90-year-old Barfoot has, thus far, refused to comply with a letter he received from the associations lawyers telling him to take the flag down by 5 PM Friday - or face legal action.
