A Woman Gets a Notification She Calls a ‘Spit to the Face’ of Those ‘Who Have Paid the Ultimate Sacrifice’

Lucia Sandoval wanted to support her Navy husband while he was deployed, so she decided to fly a Navy flag outside of her house. But then she received a letter she never expected, telling her she had to take the flag down.

“In a recent review of the community, it was brought to our attention that you may not be aware of one or more of the rules for the community,” the letter said. “Your front yard had a flag displayed not in accordance with the accepted standards. Please remove the flag ASAP.”

It continued, “Flags and flagpoles shall be uniformly placed and consistent in size and shape and shall not interfere with on site utilities.

Sandoval told KUTV she was perplexed by the letter and failed to understand how her flag was in violation of the conformity standards.

“They told me to remove it ASAP, but I am willing to fight for this,” Sandoval said. “We should be able to display whatever flag we feel passionate about.”

KUTV confronted a representative from the Spring Creek Ranch Homeowners’ Association who declined to go on camera but said the organization was looking into the matter.

Regardless of their ruling, Sandoval plans to stand strong.

“It’s a spit to the face for a lot of people,” she said. “Especially the ones who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for us to proudly wave the flag that represents what the freedom of being a United States citizen means.”

It seems like their guidelines said absolutely nothing whatsoever to indicate that a Navy flag would be in violation of community standards, but the power-mad morons at her local homeowners association seemingly don’t care. After all, who cares about supporting the sacrifices of military families when there are petty power grabs to be had?
