Col. Van T. Barfoot, a local Medal of Honor winner, is under the gun from his Henrico County community's homeowner association.The flagpole isn't the problem. Clearly they need to remove the board members instead.
In a five-paragraph letter to Barfoot that he received yesterday, Barfoot is being ordered to remove a flagpole from his yard. The decorated veteran of three wars, now 90 years old, raises the American flag every morning on the pole, then lowers and folds the flag at dusk each day in a three-corner military fashion.
Virginia now has The Office of the Common Interest Community Ombudsman. I don't see among that office's duties the words "Deliver a thorough bollocking to overweening knobs serving on the board," but I would certainly update the page, had I access.
These losers aren't qualified to mow Col. Barfoot's lawn, much less comment on the contents thereof.
Update: So it Goes in Shreveport researched the citation.
