HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — A request to remove an American flag at an Alabama condo complex has caused an online uproar and sparred a Facebook sharing frenzy.

WHNT reports that a soldier and his wife, who live at the Stepping Stone Condominiums in Huntsville, received a note Monday stating that they had to remove their flag.

The note said the American flag violated the the condo homeowners association’s bylaws — and urged the couple to remove the flag as soon as possible to keep the community tidy.

WHNT reports that after word spread about the letter, the Patriot Guard showed up and was standing guard with American flags near the couple’s condo.
