Vietnam Veteran Faces Fines For Flying Navy Flag At Home


A condo association in Enfield, Conn., is reportedly threatening to fine a Vietnam veteran for flying a Navy flag, asserting the banner does not meet community requirements.

Joe Allen served in a Navy minesweeping squadron for six years, and when he finally returned home, he was in rough shape. “I came home with my [posttraumatic stress disorder] PTSD, and I was diagnosed with severe PTSD, anxiety, depression, and anybody that knows anything about PTSD, it’s a never-ending video seven days a week, 365 days a year,” Allen told WFSB Channel 3.

The flag comforts him, Allen asserts.

“It’s comforting to me to be able to come up in the morning, see my flag, besides the American flag, but this is where I served, I served in the Navy,” he said. “It’s a symbol of me serving my time, for the freedom that we live with and it also reminds me that I made it home.” He has had the flag flying outside his home for about one year. – READ MORE
