According to reports, Robert Willits built the flagpole this past summer to display two flags: an American flag, and a black prisoner of war/missing in action flag. The second honors his brother that did not return from the Korean War. The neighborhood association claims the flagpole violates the rules they have established, while Willits has refused to remove the tribute to his brother, who is still in Korea.
The association has made attempts to negotiate with Willits, offering him the opportunity to fly the flag on the community flagpole. If he refuses, the association will fine him up to $500.
At this point, the couple has refused to pay the fine or remove the flagpole. Judy Willits, Robert’s wife, claims that the situation feels un-American. The Willits have also received support from a group of Indiana veterans.
