FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (WJLA) - An Iraq war veteran will be allowed to keep two flags hanging from his apartment balcony.

Manny Vega had recently been told by Salem Run apartments that he'd have to remove his U.S. and Marine flags because they violated the apartment's rules. He says the complex had also threatened eviction.

Vega, who served three tours in Iraq, hung the flags in October. It was only recently that Salem Run had an issue with the flags.

After taking his fight to neighbors and social media, Salem Run says Vega can now keep his flags hanging from his balcony.
