California Bar Owner told to Remove a sign, 'THANK A VETERAN FOR YOUR FREEDOM!'

Above Johnny’s Saloon in Huntington Beach, Calif., is a sign meant to honor the nation’s veterans. 
“Thank a veteran for your freedom!” reads the sign, which has been on top of the establishment for years. 
But the bar’s owners are now fighting to save it after receiving a letter from the city citing it as a violation and requesting its removal.
“We just received notice that we have 2 days to remove our sign!!!! The city says there was a complaint made about it bc rooftop signs are illegal!!!! Who would complain???? They said it must be removed in TWO DAYS… A sign that has been on this roof for 30+ years they are giving TWO DAYS…” the bar owners wrote on the saloon’s Facebook page Monday. “A sign that has been spreading a positive message to Beach & Slater, our customers & making Veterans smile… These are the kinds of actions that kill small business in America!!!! Every car dealership can do whatever they want whenever they want making Beach Blvd tacky but us little guys that want to spread a positive message get screwed??????” 
According to the Facebook post, the owners said they plan on paying the $960 penalty for not taking it down within the ordered time, because “we are not going down without a fair fight!!!”
