Not that the permit it's self is that much. Maybe a fellow vet contractor in the area would do it for cost. Man as bad as the Peoples Republic of Maryland is I submitted my own house plans drawn by myself and did my own paperwork and received my permit without having to go through a contractor. What a ripoff they have going there.
He should just ask his landlord to pull the permit for a flagpole (approx $25.00) and make sure it adheres to their rules pertaining to flagpoles (usually front line setbacks are the biggest issue with them) everything else is pretty insignificant. I cant see anyone in any town denying ANY Vet. the right to fly a flag and im sure his community will make darn sure it happens by helping him in whatever way he needs! The neighbor is very lucky they have not been harassed or expelled
who in their right mind would file a complaint against honorable marine to fly a flag for the country he gave years of his life to and fought for
Must be something more to this story because nobody in their right mind would file such a complaint
