Gregory Schaffer said after his tour of duty in the Marines he wanted to go home and fly a flag in his yard.

But a complaint from an anonymous neighbor got Schaffer in some hot water.

Schaffer got a citation from the city of Hypoluxo, Florida that said he needed a building permit to put up the flagpole.

The Marine told a TV station “it’s sad. It’s sad that we have to go through that just to fly a flag.”

Schaffer added “It’s disgusting that anybody should have to go through that. I fought for the flag, now I’m paying for the flag,” Because Schaffer rents the house he would have to pay a contractor nearly $1,000 to put in a flagpole.
