Veteran Ordered To Remove Flag From Outside Home


Hillsborough, NH–A Navy veteran is fighting to be able to show his patriotism by flying an American flag outside his apartment building.

Joe LeVangie, 88, said he’s upset after he and his neighbors were told to take their flags down because flying them was against management policy. He said there should be an exception for the flag.

LeVangie, a World War II veteran, said he used to fly his American flag outside his apartment at the Maple Leaf complex in Hillsborough.

“In respect for all the troops serving overseas now and for those who never came back,” he said.

But recently, his management company told all residents that their flags had to come down. The brackets for the flag poles were also removed.

“I was madder than hell,” he said. “Come to find out, it was the maintenance man who was told to do so.”
