I have an idea, all NFL games should be canceled for four years and all NFL players, coaches, and other employees – should have to spend the next four years in the military. They will respect the flag and the anthem after that.
Yesterday the military showed us how to respect our anthem and our flag!
This year marks the 118th time the two teams have met. The teams meet in a neutral city between their respective academies. They often play in NFL stadiums due to the enormous number of active duty and veteran fans who wish to attend.
Before the game, the choirs of the Annapolis and West Point academies joined together to sing the national anthem. It was a solemn moment and was made even more beautiful by the falling snow.
In a year in which the national anthem has been used by activists to symbolize division and strife, the choirs from the Naval Academy and West Point joined together to deliver a stirring, snow-driven rendition of the “Star-Spangled Banner” that will not soon be forgotten:
This is how it's done! The National Anthem at yesterday's Army-Navy Game will give you chills. 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/XpjPEIzcmm

And look at their faces. Even in the driven snow, they are still smiling and proud. Not pouting like oppressed multimillionaire kneelers.
These young men & women have worked hard to get where they are today and don’t behave like spoiled divas. These are the people who represent my country and deserve respect.
