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.
