LETTER: Respect the flag and the College of the Ozarks

(metro creative)

To the Editor:

I am very much in disagreement with the Sports Editor Marcus Traxler's column in the Oct. 31 issue.

Marcus and evidently the NAIA are not veterans. If they were, they would respect our flag.

The College of the Ozarks made a stand that the whole nation should listen to. The college and city took a stand, saying no to the tournament and all the money that comes with it. How many times do you see that in this nation?

If any of you reading this article are not respecting the flag, you should all watch the video about what inspired Francis Scott Key to write the lyrics to the national anthem. Then you will be moved to respect it.

If you are not proud of this country, maybe move.
