Flag ban at Wrentham housing complex enrages tenants
By Associated Press
Thursday, July 12, 2012 -
WRENTHAM -- Residents of a Wrentham public housing complex are outraged that the town’s housing agency has banned the display of U.S. flags outside their homes.
The Wrentham Housing Authority notified residents of the policy through a letter taped to their doors Wednesday.
The unsigned letter says the move was made after a tenant complained to the state Department of Housing and Community Development over the Fourth of July holiday.
Barbara Marshall kept a U.S. flag flying outside Wednesday even after the letter was delivered and tells The Sun Chronicle she has no intention of removing it.
The 82-year-old Marshall, whose brother took part in the D-Day invasion of France, says she was so upset after reading the letter she had to lie down.
No one at the housing authority would comment.
