I want to do a follow up on a blog I did a couple of days ago.
A veteran was told by an apartment complex to remove his American flag. He refused, it made it into the national media, and then onto the internet. The management company was forced to relent and allow the flag.
Wisconsin Army Veteran Allowed to Keep Flag on Display
A Wisconsin Army veteran -- who faced eviction this week for flying the American flag -- will now be allowed to keep the flag up for as long as he wants.
Under mounting nationwide protest, Charlie Price, 28, of Oshkosh, Wis., and officials at Midwest Realty Management struck a "mutual agreement" that allows the veteran to continue displaying the patriotic symbol, according to a statement posted on the company's website on Thursday.
Randy Rich, the apartment complex's property manager, told FoxNews.com that Midwest Realty Management received nearly 4,000 e-mails and thousands of phone calls in connection to the controversy.
A Facebook group created by Dawn Price, "Freedom to Display the American Flag," had roughly 2,000 members on Wednesday. As of early Friday, that number had grown to more than 44,000.
I salute Mr and Mrs Price for standing up for their rights to fly the flag and all of the Americans who stood up and said they were not going to tolerate this.
We are seeing this more and more lately in which conservatives are taking a stance against anti-Americanism and fighting it wherever it is.
I can think of no more fitting tribute to those that have given their lives defending America than to have the Americans they were defending take up the fight in their absence.
Note: I am away until Monday and am putting my blog on moderate. I will have limited internet time so please do not feel slighted if I do not respond to comments right away. Have a safe, reflective, and pleasant holiday weekend.
