Florida veterans call Obama flag 'a disgrace'3/15/2012
Lake County, Fla., veterans don't cotton to any tampering with Old Glory. Anyone who dares remove the stars from the flag does so at their own peril - in this case, the Lake County Democratic Party, which decided to hoist a flag with President Obama's image in place of the traditional stars over their headquarters.
Veterans called the reconfigured banner "a disgrace," reports Fox News. "It's absolutely disrespectful," said Jim Bradford, 71-year-old veteran who served during the Bay of Pigs invasion. Bradford sent pictures of the flag to fellow veterans and delivered a copy of the federal flag code to Nancy Hurlbert, chairwoman of the Lake County Democratic Party. Hurlbert apologized and removed the flag.
