A man from Skokie, Illinois is in a flag-flap with a ceremtery where his soldier-son is buried. Elie Britton has flown a U.S. flag and a prisoner of war flag at the gravesite for Army Corporal Albert Britton, who was killed in Iraq two years ago. Now the cemetery says the flag poles are too high and he should take them down or workers will remove them. The cemetery says no memorial over four feet high is allowed. Britton's father is outraged saying he plans to move his son's body and expects the cemetery to pay for it.  The manager wants to meet with Britton to work something out.
