  • Video goes viral after claim of citation for flying military flags

"We invite all to receive a Hero's Welcome in Jacksonville, NC where you will find no shortage of service flags flying proudly".

Employees at the business said a customer overheard Power issuing the warning, which told the business to correct the violation or risk "prosecution for the offense".

According to witnesses, that began a tense exchange between Power and the veteran, with Power allegedly questioning what the customer had done for his country.

"She says, 'What did you do for this country?' He says, 'I took three bullets to the leg".

"She turned around at the door and said to me, in a very loud voice that, what I did for this country did not matter", he said.

Store managers refused to take down the flags.

The business owner later updated his video to say, "The city of Jacksonville is working with our company to make sure things like this does not happen again". That video attracted an overwhelming amount of attention on social media.

A Jacksonville City employee and her supervisor have been placed on administrative leave after citing a local business for flying military flags.

"That's right, we just got a ticket. for flying military flags", he said.

The incredulous employee asked people to share what happened. "He fought in Iraq, and we spilled a lot of blood out there for this country, and they want to talk about a flag on top of a building?" Are you serious right now?

"These flags that are flying overhead should not be a problem", said the employee, identifying himself only as Shaun.

The incident soon got the attention of the mayor's office.

Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry responded on Monday evening, tweeting he has "directed city staff that military flags should be treated [the] same as USA flag".

Mayor Curry has promised the city will 'review employee procedures'.

"Let them fly", Curry tweeted Monday. COJ employees [are] expected to be respectful of our customers-you, the people of Jacksonville. "She needs to apologize to the veteran community, and to every American who supports us".

A city spokesman said in a statement that the incident was under review and added that the mayor has reached out to discuss the matter with store officials.

WJXT reports Jacksonville City Hall phones were inundated with callers Tuesday about the flag citation calling for Power's firing.
