Cody Meredith mounted a U.S. flag — black and white, with a single red stripe — on his pickup to send a message of his respect for fallen firefighters. But when he drove to work Monday, his supervisors at Crete Area Medical Center gave him a message of their own, his wife said: Take the flag off the truck, or take the truck off hospital property. Before his shift ended, his wife would write about the order on Facebook and contact the newspaper, and the hospital would call it a misunderstanding and a mistake. But Kristin Meredith would continue to call it an outrage, something that shouldn’t disappear simply because the hospital apologized.
