A local veteran is still fighting for his country. Vietnam Vet Al Borchardt has moved from the battlefield to his front yard over a dispute about how he flies his American flag. He says he's in the middle of a war with his homeowners' association and he may have to surrender. The 75-year-old lives in the gated Ridgeview community. Borchardt  started flying an American flag atop a standard 20 ft. pole on national holidays. He even lighted the flag at night. But he was notified by the Homeowners Association he's breaking the rules. The rule states that only small flags attached to the house are allowed. Borchardt faces fines of up to 00 a day. Borchardt says they will contact local legislators to try to get some help. He tell News 13 that it's possible he might move away to a place can fly his American flag.
