Cantor introduces House Resolution: Flag pole debate in Henrico County

Posted by Terry Alexander - email

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A flag fight in Henrico County is now the subject of federal legislation.

This debate centers on Colonel Van Barfoot, a veteran at odds with his homeowners association over a pole he uses to fly the U.S. flag.

Today, Virginia Congressman Eric Cantor and California Representative Howard McKeon introduced a House Resolution to allow any Medal of Honor recipient to display the American flag on their property at all times.

Barfoot was awarded that distinction for his service in World War Two.
