LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A Vietnam War veteran says he is resisting his community homeowners association about a flag pole being in violation in his front yard. Ted Deyoung’s said the flag in his front yard has been there for nearly two decades, so instead of taking the pole down, he decided to fight back.”It really hurt me,” DeYoung said, “I want to see them try to take it down.
“DeYoung told 13 Action News that his HOA sent him a courtesy letter that his flag pole in the front yard was in violation of the community rules and regulations.However, Deyoung said he flies the flag for everyone who has pledged to protect it and those who couldn’t come home as he demanded to go to Vietnam while in the military and was awarded a bronze star for his actions.”It means a lot to me,” he said. “I mean, choking up a bit now thinking about the flag.”Deyoung said he believes the courtesy letter was sent in retaliation for several complaints he filed with the HOA in the last month and a half about their dirty-tattered flag flying at the entrance to the housing complex.
