PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- A disabled Vietnam veteran and members of American Legion Post 274 in Peekskill clashed at a recent council meeting regarding whether the city was properly flying the American Flag at City Hall, according to a story at theexaminernews.com.

George Ondek, a past commander of the Disabled American Veterans, said the city was violating a federal code that says the American Flag should be flown in the center and above all other flags, the story said.

Peekskill officials agreed with Boddie that the city was in compliance with the code, the story said.
