This veteran did something amazing for our Country. Many years ago and today too. Rather than be honored at a game – he chooses to make a statement to the kneelers. That it is disrespectful to the Flag of this great Country and to the men who gave ALL for it.
A long time Bronco fan, he and his daughter were asked to be honored at the Bronco’s game tonight against the Patriots. Their response shocked the Broncos. But it didn’t shock the millions of American’s who understand the flag should be respected and it is not the appropriate place to stage protests. Millions cheered this war veteran on and applauded him on his decision! The most decorated war Veteran in Colorado, Sgt. Jack Thurman, Marine, did not accept the invitation nor did his daughter, a retired Navy Commander. (Video Below)
The decorated war hero said:
“I will fight for that flag.”
“How many bodies do you think that flag covered through the years including the Civil War?”
And his daughter said:
“Old Glory she can’t speak for herself, so there’s a boycott that we are trying to, I guess, unfortunately NOT support the NFL teams or any other professional team, that is kneeling during the National Anthem.”
