CHICAGO (CBS) — Even though the Glendale Heights VFW post has been told by its landlord that the veterans may fly the U.S. flag, the issue still isn’t resolved.

As first reported by Newsradio, the VFW’s landlord, Midland Realty, says it was a mistake to send a letter to the VFW that said, “no flags.”

And yesterday, the VFW post got all that in writing from Midland.

Midland has also said it might need to relocate the flagpole – at Midland’s expense – because of renovations.

“You say you’re going to move it? Move it to where?,” said VFW Commander Terrence House said.

“Is this just a ploy to get the media off your back or how is this thing going to go?”

House says he’s glad the VFW heard from the landlord, but now he wants to work out the details of exactly why that flagpole has to be moved and to where.
