That Star-Spangled Banner yet waves on Keith Ludwig’s balcony.
The Ohio veteran won a battle to display the American flag outside his apartment, Fox 8 reported.
“If my flag has to come down, all the satellite dishes have to come down”
“I’m a veteran, my grandfather’s a veteran, my dad’s a veteran,” Ludwig said. “We’re a military family.”
Ludwig said he had displayed the flag for more than two years before the management at Shoregate Towers in Willowick told him it violated a clause in his lease barring attaching any items to the balcony. It was a clause reportedly being violated by several residents, Ludwig said, noting other flags and satellite dishes.
“If my flag has to come down, all the satellite dishes have to come down,” he said.
But the flag never came down. Shortly after Ludwig appeared Thursday on Fox 8 to tell his story, the apartment complex contacted him to tell him the stars and stripes could stay.
“If there was a problem before, they should have said something before,” Ludwig said. “And, I mean, why all of a sudden does it have to come down?”
