veteran in battle over U.S., Marine Corps flags

Fawk

GRIFFIN, Ga. -

A combat veteran says he's been inundated with support in his battle with his community management over a patriotic display outside his home.

As FOX 5 reported on Monday, retired Marine Captain Jim Lowe has been told to take down either his American flag for the Marine Corps colors that are displayed outside his home in the Sun City community in Griffin.

Last week, on his 73rd birthday Capt. Lowe received a letter saying he was in violation of the community's codes and covenants, which clearly state that each home can only have one flag. Lowe faces a fine of up to $25 a day. But Capt. Lowe contends it is not a flag.

"I don't consider it a flag," Lowe said. "Most people don't. You talk to any Marine. Those are the colors. That is the flag."

Since the story aired, Lowe said he's been deluged with emails and calls from people expressing their support.

"I didn't realize I had so many friends," Lowe said.

His long list of supporters includes some neighbors.

"A lot of retired military people [live here]. I honor the fact they are respect the fact they want to fly their military flags. said Suzie Brigden.

An on-site manager said that the board of directors and legal counsel will review the code that states only one flag per home. If there are any changes, they will communicate that with the community.

Lowe says it doesn't matter what the board decides, he's standing his ground.

"Worse came to worse and I ran out of alternatives, there would be a for sale sign out there before the American flag and my Marine colors came down," Lowe said.

When you live in communities like that, you sign an agreement to abide by their rules, same as with an HOA. Fucking nazi bastards.

If this is what he is flying then it is not a flag...

Organizational Battle Colors


Each unit in the Corps of battalion-size or larger also hold an organizational color (which makes up the unit's colors along with the national flag). It is usually identical to the Marine Corps battle color, though the scroll will have the unit's name instead of "United States Marine Corps". It will also bear the streamers authorized to the unit, or scarlet and gold tassels if none are authorized.

Why because HE CHOSE TO MOVE INTO THAT NEIGHBORHOOD? Should have read the fine print before signing on the dotted line. I'm tired of people sticking up for those who fail to read the fine print and their binding contract. That's what is wrong with America, it's always someone else's problem.

And just to help stupid he may want to do some research. Florida for example has flag laws that supersede HOA. You can fly an American Flag on a 20' maximum flag pole in your front yard regardless of HOA rules.

Why? It's a private community and he signed an agreement.

the fed gov should pass a fed law superseding all state laws that says veterans can fly flags of the unit/squad/etc etc they were part of, they have plenty of other dumb fuck fed laws about time they make a good one.

Is it impossible to think they change or amended the rules after he moved there?

then he should have worked to prevent the rule change, he still agreed to live in a community where those rules do/can exist

I doubt it. Possible but I doubt it. If they did he might have more of a leg to stand on and I'm sure he would be screaming about it.

X2. Again, I doubt it was amended, can you pull the HOA rules from the local courthouse like you can in FL? Might make for some good reading.

Maybe he is doing this to bring attention to the rule that some stay at home bitch made because she is an over controlling suckubus asshole

And reporters never have to cut anything for airtime/article length? Same for the next 2 chops at least before it hits the public.

Any proof that he moved in and knowingly broke them?

But Capt. Lowe contends it is not a flag.

"I don't consider it a flag," Lowe said. "Most people don't. You talk to any Marine. Those are the colors. That is the flag."


He's not arguing he didn't know the rules, he's not arguing the rules are new, he's arguing the rules don't apply to him
