First of all I want to personally thank Everett “Smitty” Smith for his service and his family’s sacrifice in supporting him and worrying about him while he was away fighting for our freedom.
I understand the thinking behind the protest of taking a knee during the National Anthem, however, I don’t think it’s appropriate and people need to find a different way to protest the injustices that have been piled on them.
We can all thank this man right here and the many others like him, both men and women, who have given us the right to protest in the first place. Smitty and many like him are the reason we stand at attention when our national anthem is played.
God Bless our brave men and women who are fighting for our freedom everyday and all those who have gone before them. And God bless the United States of America.
I think you’ll enjoy this great article that I found on Smitty’s tribute blog. Thank you, Smitty for everything.
