This Military Veteran Was Told to Take Down a Flag in His Yard, Watch His Response

Retired Army veteran Tony Cumberworth, 73, says the American flag flying in front of his home has been posted in his yard for 20 years and he wasn’t about to take it down.

Last week, Cumberworth’s homeowner’s association sent him a letter telling him to remove the flag and pole in four days or he would be fined $50 a day.

“I fought for this country, my son fought for this country — I do not understand them trying to take away my rights,” Cumberworth said.

Cumberworth took the fight to the homeowners association after he combed the bylaws and the covenant and said he didn’t find anything about flying a flag. Nearby neighbors said if there were complaints about the flag, they didn’t come from them.

Cumberworth says he’s displayed Old Glory at every home he’s ever had from California to Alabama, and says Georgia will be no different.

“This is America and nobody can tell me that I’m not allowed to show my patriotism,” he said.

Shortly after the Investigators left the neighborhood, Cumberworth called and said the HOA sent him an email reversing their position. It read:

“Please disregard the code violation notice. It was sent to your home in error. We truly thank you for your service in Vietnam and your American flag can stay in your yard as long as your desire.”

Mr. Cumberworth, thank you for your service and thank you for standing up for Old Glory once again.

Please share this post on Facebook if it makes you happy to see Tony Cumberworth win out over the intolerant liberals who tried to stop him from showing his patriot gesture.
