Thanks. A most excellent thread!

I'm requisitioning it to post on some boards I frequent.

I was heading back to my seat at Charlotte a couple of years ago while attending a NASCAR race there. When our national anthem started, I stopped and rendered honors. About 4 seconds later, a bunch of red-faced fans were standing, hands over hearts, as I stood there reassured that I still had my "Pissed-Off-Senior Chief" voice.
It only takes a word to change someone's appreciation for what they have been given.

Great post!

A nice thread and it's alright to remind people to have respect. As a 3rd gen Marine and a son that is 4th gen Marine we understand our flag is more than a decoration and the athem is more than a song. So reminding those that forget is the responsibility of everyone who understands what it is to be part of our nation.

Thanks for the smile!
