A Marine Corps veteran and his wife are fighting their Texas homeowners association after the group refused to allow them to fly their American and Marine Corps flags outside their home, Fox News reports.

Cpl. Michael Pereira, who served three tours in Iraq from 2002 to 2009, moved into a Kingdom Heights subdivision in Rosenberg, Texas ,about two months ago with his wife.

After moving in, they proudly displayed the two flags in the driveway of their home.

“They represent this county. They represent a brotherhood I was a part of,” Pereira told KPRC. “[They] show respect for all the people I went to war with and the ones that didn’t come back.”

Pereira said he would raise the flags every morning and would lower them every night. He never expected it would be a problem with the homeowners association.


I have always heard Texans boast, “Everything is bigger in Texas!”  Does that include pathetic trash that are anti-military and against flying the Marine Corps flag and United States flag?  Apparently in 1 community in Rosenberg, Texas, it does.

The flag of the United States of America and the Marine Corps Flag are every Marines right to fly them loud n proud.

Rosenberg, Texas, is a city in the U.S. state of Texas, within the Houston–The Woodlands–Sugar Land metropolitan area and Fort Bend County.

 Pereira proudly flies the American flag and the Marine Corps flag in his front yard, then someone in their neighborhood took “offense” to one or both of the flags.  The pathetic person(s) then reported Pereira and his flags to the Homeowners Association Property Manager.
In a day and age where our nations flag and the Marine Corps flag offends people and can pressure to have them taken down, is a disgrace and should never be allowed to happen.
The pathetic gut maggot who is offended and reported the flags, should be Spartan kicked and made to sign up for the Marine Corps and serve their country.  Maybe then, they will understand the sanctity and honor that comes with the Marines and our nation.
Pereria’s wife took to Facebook over their situation and posted it on their neighborhood Facebook page.  Within the 1st hour, she had over 100 comments in support of Pereria and his flags, according to the Houston News.
“They represent this country, They represent a brotherhood I was part of.  They show respect for everyone I went to war with and the ones that didn’t come back.  If they are going to take them down, its going to be a fight to take them down, and no one fights harder than a veteran combat Marine.  If they do not get the rules changed, I will start a petition to get the rules changed.”
One of their neighbors, Ashley Johannsen, whom loves across the street, “It doesn’t bother me. I think it’s kind of silly to have someone take down their flags — especially if he fought for the country.”
Pereria is waiting to hear back from the HOA, though the HOA did release a stamen via their “attorney”.
“In this particular case [Pereira] installed two 20 [foot-long] flag poles on both sides of his driveway (one on each side) without first submitting the plans or seeking approval,” Sears said. “The problem is that one of the poles is in a utility easement, both poles are within the 25 [feet] building setback line and the restrictions (and Texas Property Code) only allow for the installation of one flag pole.
We have already reached out to the Veteran to let him know that the issue is not the flags and are awaiting a response. We are certainly willing to continue to work with this Veteran in relocating one of his poles and would be remise sic if we did not take this opportunity to thank him for his personal sacrifice and service to our Country.”
Blatantly obvious that what they have done is turn the “Flags” complaint into a HOA Flag Pole violation.  Pathetic
If anyone has ever had to deal with their local HOA, they understand the dirty little games they play, they know it turns more into a “snobs club”.
I’ve dealt with such a pathetic little group, I found it was more about neighborhood politics and sad little people who lack the warfighter mentality and generally do not like warfighters.
I am not saying every single HOA has this mentality, I have yet to find one that is on the up-and-up and holds integrity and valor to the highest standards.
Always forward Marine, do not take a knee to these people, fight for your rights and beliefs, it is people like those that are part of the cancer in our nation.
