A Navy veteran who installed a pole in his yard to fly the American flag is now in danger of losing his home because of it.
Reed Hermanâ€™s home in the Wright County city of St. Michael has been foreclosed upon by the homeowners association for his development, and the house will be sold for the highest cash offer at a sheriffâ€™s auction Oct. 7.
The Preserve West Townhome Association claims itâ€™s selling the home, valued at around $300,000, to recover about $6,600 in legal fees and other costs associated with the fight over Hermanâ€™s flagpole, which the association maintains was installed in violation of the rules Herman agreed to live by when he bought a home in the development.https://taskandpurpose.com/news/navy-veteran-flagpole-lawsuit
