DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -

Another local veteran is in the middle of a flag fight. Armond “Sonny” Noah said he wasn’t given notice that he couldn’t fly the U.S. flag outside his DeKalb County residence.

The Korean War vet said that housing management simply removed his flags from a landscaping area.

Several days later he received a called from management officials, who said that Noah couldn’t add the flags in a commons area.

Noah lives in the Ashford Landing Senior Residences, a federally subsidized housing facility.

“I don’t think we should have to fight for the flag,” Noah said. “It was an honor for me to serve the country. And I was proud of that. I was a good soldier.”

A spokesperson for the housing complex said that the matter was mishandled. They plan on issuing an apology to Noah. They’d also like to meet with the veteran and reach a compromise.
