Response to Jopek column

To the Editor:

As a veteran of the Vietnam War where I spent one year in the Delta, bordered on one side by Cambodia and on another side by the Mekong River, I take exception to the comments by Mr. Jopek in the September edition of The Lakeland Times regarding the dishonoring on the National Anthem and the Flag of the United States of America by the NFL. This not a matter of free speech as there has been no assertion that the NFL has violated any law. It is simply a matter of dishonoring the flag and the anthem for political reasons and nothing more. In addition, I find it offensive that Jopek further attempts to justify his opinion by referring to his dislike for the Confederate flag which has nothing to do with the current issue.
