WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The mother of a US soldier serving overseas says her homeowners association has threatened to fine her for her tribute to the troops.

Kelly Hill lives in the Willoughby Park subdivision off of Carolina Beach Road. Her son, Sgt. Zakary Faircloth, is in his second tour of duty in Afghanistan in three years.

To support her son and all of the troops, she hung a decorative flag from her door, but her homeowners association said no, even on Memorial Day.

“It’s something you can’t explain, the feeling that you have for your child being over there in danger and wondering why people can’t support that,” Hill said.

Hill and other neighbors are not happy about the situation.

“I’m disappointed,” neighbor Dawn Schuffle said. “It’s disturbing to me that they would ask someone to take something like that down.”

Hill took down the flag, but still has her home as patriotic as the homeowners association will allow.

I’m not leaving! But, I am with you Guest 461 and hate stupid HOA’s who think they are the gustapo and have too much time on their hands…and want to disrupt normal peoples lives, who are JUST LIVING LIFE, right?

I am a northerner, but have assimilated into a wonderful environment with friends from all over the country. I feel bad that the people who constantly tell the northerners to go back up north, do not seem to understand that is not how to have a LOGICAL argument.

So sorry, but the argument telling people to leave… Read more »

Does your HOA know that you refer to yourself as “BetterThanYouNananaBooBoo?” Really? That’s tackier than a gaudy shutter.

With all the things wrong in the world, you are worried about grass above a certain height, mismatched shutters, and toys in the front yard??? You must live in Landfall (or wish you were).

Think about the folks who just went through all the tornadoes and now don’t even have a home! Some don’t even have a life…or a family! You need a serious attitude adjustment. What a snob!
