A local veteran is speaking up and fired up after being told to take down his American flag.
The man, who didn't want to be identified, says he served as an Air Force Security Cop guarding bombers and tankers in the Vietnam era. He explains his girlfriend lives at The Pines at Q Plaza near 86th and Park Drive. He said they received a newsletter about a week ago that said they couldn't fly any flags on any of their balconies.
He says when he asked management about if he could fly his own American flag they said it might offend some people. He said it's absolutely ridiculous this policy has been put in place.
"Here it is coming up close to the 4th of July and we're not allowed to fly our flags. This is actually not only absurd it is outrageous. It's really really unpatriotic," the man described.
The newsletter says the apartments are managed by Denizen Management. 3 News Now tried to get in touch with The Pines at Q Plaza's general manager but did not hear back.
