SWEETWATER, FL (NBC News) – A Florida Air Force veteran says he was forced to sell his home over a dispute about a small American flag he placed in a flower pot.
"One day I was thinking about the country and I put a small American flag on my front porch in a flower pot," said Larry Murphree.
"It's a small flag," said Murphree. "It stands for a big thank you."
He says the HOA at the Tides Condominium didn’t agree.
"I got a violation letter that stated the American flag was an unauthorized object and for me to take it down," said Murphree.
"They started fining me up to $1,000 because I wouldn't take the flag down."
