Louis Haros' son Paul hung the flag 11 months ago when he left for his third tour in Iraq.
But the Haros' neighbors feel flying a battered flag is disrespectful and want it taken down. One man even placed a brand new flag on the Haros' front porch.
"I don't see it as being disrespectful to the flag, I see it as keeping a promise to a son that you love and made a promise to," Louis Haros said.
Haros expects his son to return home this week.
Federal law governs how flags should be flown, but it does not require worn flags to be replaced.
