The HOA at the Village at Towne Lake sent an email to residents explaining that they could only fly the flag on specific holidays. That didn't fly well with some residents.

They said they've displayed flags since the day they moved in -- some for more than a decade, and now they're being told to take them down.
"Brave men and women fight for that flag. And many of them come home in coffins draped in that flag," said Donna Gorshe. "My father fought in World War II and was in the Battle of the Bulge and lost many of his friends. They fought for the flag."
