This man needs help!!
Colonel Van T. Barfort, 90, from Richmond VA is being ordered by his homeowner association to remove the flag pole on his property.
Did you miss it? Look at the Colonel’s picture again. See what’s hanging around his neck? Yep.
The Congressional Medal of Honor.
“The decorated veteran of three wars, now 90 years old, raises the American flag every morning on the pole, then lowers and folds the flag at dusk each day in a three-corner military fashion.”
You pissed yet? If not. Leave. Immediately.
From the Richmond Times Dispatch:
In a priority mail letter, the Coates & Davenport law firm in Richmond is ordering Barfoot to remove the pole by 5 p.m. Friday or face “legal action being brought to enforce the Covenants and Restrictions against you.” The letter states that Barfoot will be subject to paying all legal fees and costs in any successful legal proceeding pursued by the homeowner association’s board.
Barfoot lives in the Sussex Square community in far western Henrico; its board of directors rejected a plea from Barfoot in July to approve the pole, disallowing the fixture on aesthetic grounds.
You can read the entire article from the Richmond Times Dispatch here.
So here is what all of us need to do for Colonel Barfoot. It is the very least we can do for him in return for his heroic service, sacrifice, and patriotism for us all.
Call and or fax Coates & Davenport, the law firm representing the home owner association.

“Dad sort of feels like this is the end.”
