I have utmost respect for all people who have served our country, something I did not do. I remember my daddy swinging
at me when I came into his bedroom when I was sick in the middle of the night - he was still in World War II, and he
was every night. I watched my friends from high school go out of their minds from Vietnam.
I have to disagree with the complaints about our athletes displaying our flag. Our Ol-ympians are so proud to represent
us. Maybe they didn't shoot a gun to defend us, but they trained long and hard to make us proud.
There is more than one way to say I'm proud to be an American.
