Abusive HOA Tells a 73-Year-Old Vet to Remove His America Flag; He Refuses; Then This Happened…

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]A 73-year-old retired Army veteran has proudly flown his American flag at his Conyers, Georgia home for 20 years and no one had ever complained about it.

Until now.

[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Tony Cumberworth received a notice from the Weatherstone Homeowner’s Association, Inc., that he had four days to to remove the Old Glory or would be forced to pay a $50 fine for each day that he continues flying the American flag in his front yard.

“I am a proud 73-year-old American,” Cumberworth he told WXIA 11 Alive News. “I’m not taking it down,” he proclaimed.

After media attention by WXIA, USA Today, and others, and after Mr. Cumberworth made it crystal clear he had no intention of backing down, Weatherstone Homeowner’s Association suddenly flipped, issuing the following statement to Mr. Cumberworth, stating that their original notice was sent to his home “in error,” WXIA reported.

“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.”

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