“Injured Afghanistan Vet Told She Can’t Fly American Flag At Apartment”
“Jen Elliot was shocked when she found a notice on her front door. It’s from her property management company asking her to remove an American flag from her balcony, along with some other items.
Elliot says she immediately checked her lease to see if she was in fact violating any rules.
“It does say you cannot have flags, plants or wind chimes. However, it does say that the American flag can be displayed within the laws of the state and proper flag etiquette. And mine is.”
After CBS13 went to the property manager, the rental company called Elliot to say she can fly her flag—it just can’t stay where it’s at. The flag can’t be screwed into the siding of her balcony.
She was a specialist serving as a heavy-wheeled vehicle operator and a .50-caliber gunner.
“I suffered from PVI, which is a traumatic brain injury. I was blown off into the wall, and I was unconscious for a couple of minutes. And I still have PTSD from that.”
Elliot says she’s moving out unless they let her keep the flag the way it is.
“I’ll take my plants and wind chimes down, it that’s what you want. But I’m not taking that flag down.””
