Lafayette H.O.A. Requests Family Take Down Military Welcome Banner [Video]

Lafayette resident Petty Officer Third Class Anthony Marsiglia is stationed out of Norfolk, VA. Currently he’s deployed on an aircraft carrier, and is supposed to be home in a few weeks.¬†Anthony Marsiglia’s family lives in Frenchman’s Creek subdivision in Lafayette, and was contacted by an attorney from the homeowner’s association who has told them to take down the family’s military “Welcome Home” sign.

Anthony has been gone for 4 years now.


“He’s out there and he’s left his daughter, that’s hard already for him. This is how she keeps him in her heart everyday and clearly, if you see the house, it’s a homage to her daddy,” said his mother Judi Pellegran.

“I’m just not quite understanding why it can’t stay up and they haven’t been able to explain that to me either,” said Pellegran.

“The letter the family received referred them to a section of their homeowner rules, which deals with size requirements for signs. It’s the only part where signs are mentioned. The requirement bans signs from being larger than 24-by-36 inches, but the Pellegran family’s sign fits within those dimensions.”\
