Bank of America Branch in South Carolina Refuses Display of U.S. Flags to Honor Fallen Marine - Video 9/22/09
Here is video on the story that a Bank of America in Gaffney, South Carolina refused to allow a row of U.S. Flags to be placed in the yard of the bank to honor U.S. Marine Christopher Fowlkes, killed in Afghanistan.
The video features Megyn Kelly talking with a neighbor of the fallen Marine who placed the flags in the ground in his honor. She said she noticed after placing the flags that they disappeared. They had been pulled up by the manager who told the neighbor that it was against policy to allow the flags. She also reportedly told the woman that the flags "might be offensive" to some of their customers.
Bank of America has apologized for what they call a "misunderstanding."
NOTE: Megyn Kelly mistakenly refers to the U.S. Flag as the "Stars and Bars," which of course is what the Confederate Flag was called.
