REFUSES TO REMOVE SIGN
When told her refusal to take down the 2-foot sign would result in a fine of $100 a day, Stacie Kelley, a normally quiet Army wife not used to the national and even international spotlight, had a simple message for the homeowners association directors.
"Bring it on," she said.

Stacey, when it was time to have you on the air, my screener told me that some man answered your phone and said you couldn't talk to us in Texas because you were going to be on TV instead. Thank you for emailing me. We will call you back on Monday to try to arrange a time that will work for you.
Thanks for being a military family!

email Stacey's predicament
My name is Melinda Kelley and I am David Kelley's mom and Stacey Kelley's mother-in-law. I wanted to thank you for asking Stacey to share her story. It is very compelling and strange at the same time.
We SUPPORT Stacey, David and ALL of the troops around the world. What has the country come to, especially after 9/11 where we are dictated by HOA's saying we cannot support our troop with a visual 2' sign.
I feel very strongly that the HOA should have made provisions for patrotic messages be allowed (within reason) in peoples front yards... just like American Flags are allowed. Thank you again for sharing Stacey & David's story.
