Absurdity in Dallas -- HOA Tangles with U.S. Marine over Semper Fi Stickers

Frank Larison is a disabled veteran with more than 14 years of service, including more than a year of combat duty in Vietnam. The 58-year-old former Marine now finds himself under attack by his Dallas homeowners association for displaying seven decals on his vehicle supporting the Marine Corps. "To me, it's being patriotic, and it shows that I served," the veteran told FOX 4. The board says the decals are advertisements that violate HOA rules, and must be covered or removed. Otherwise, the homeowners association for The Woodlands II on The Creek —- where Larimore has lived for eight years —- says in a letter it will tow the car at Larimore's expense. The board also threatens to fine him $50 for any future incident.

Here's the story from Fox 4 in Dallas:

In my opinion, this is an outrage! I hope this HOA President is promptly removed from office by the residents of her condo community. Semper Fi, Mr. Larison. Thank you for your service!
