Here’s a solution to this Homeowner Association bully tactic, everyone in that neighborhood should wrap their mail box with the US Flag.
John Ackert is a Navy veteran who received a notice from his Home Association to remove the American flag wrap from his mailbox. Ackert contends he’s had this on his mailbox four years going and he had never received any complaints.
The homeowner association has a new compliance officer who was given a list of things to write up, and Ackert says while he respects her doing her job, he is going to go before the board and make his appeal with his flag wrap in his hand.
Ackert said he would ask the HOA to change the rules to allow him to continue to use the flag. Why is our flag the target of disgust these days by liberals? This is beyond ridiculous. Remember how the politicians say we live in two Americas? This is part of that narrative.
The Southwood Residential Community Association sent a letter to the veteran who put up the wrap, asking him to remove it or face penalties. However, the veteran said he’s not backing down without a fight.
“It’s not in consonance with their aesthetic values here in Southwood,” said retired U.S. Navy Officer, John Ackert.
Ackert received the notice last week.
“As the holiday season comes to a close, please remove the American flag mailbox wrap. Decoration may be displayed 30 days prior and must be taken down 15 days after,” Ackert continues. “That’s been there for four years. It was put there 30 days after I moved into this house.”
Now, Ackert is standing up for what he believes in. He wrote an appeal and hopes the SRCA changes its mind.
“I view this as a form of bullying to be honest. And I think people should stand up to bullying of any form, and particularly this,” Ackert said.
Neighbors in Southwood said the patriotism is refreshing, and the letter was a bit harsh.
“The man’s a veteran, he served the country. It’s just a mailbox with a flag, I don’t think it’s right. He owns the house, he can at least have that,” said neighbor, Mike Patel.
Residents receive a binder full of rules and standards before moving into Southwood. Many said they’re not surprised by the H.O.A.’s actions.
We support this veteran and his fight to keep his flag on his mailbox. Pray along with him as he goes before the homeowner’s association.
