U.S Navy Vet Ordered to Remove American Flag from His Mailbox by Liberal Bullies

Retired U.S. Navy Officer John Ackert says he received a letter from the Southwood Residential Community Associate in Tallahassee telling him to remove the American flag wrapping on his mailbox or face penalties. He told WCTV that he is not backing down without a fight.

Navy veteran John Ackert feels that he is being treated very unfairly: “I view this as a form of bullying to be honest,” Ackert said. “And I think people should stand up to bullying of any form, and particularly this.”

The letter he received from his residential community read: “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.”

Some of Ackert’s neighbors told WCTV the letter was a bit harsh and said they were not entirely surprised by the H.O.A’s actions.

“They do things like this all the time,” Mike Stephenson said. “I think it’s ridiculous. What’s wrong with being patriotic in the country you live in?”

Mike Patel said: “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.”

The H.O.A. letter says Ackert has 15 days to remove the wrap or face a fine. He has not received a response to his appeal.
