served in the US Army for 22 years alongside some very brave men and women, I
find Lady Gaga’s defiling of our National Anthem reprehensible. We are the land
of the free because America has always been the home of the brave from
Lexington and Concord to Kandahar. This young lady should be taken to Ft.
McHenry and given a history lesson as to why Francis Scott Key wrote those
words incredible words. In this week where we remember the 150th anniversary of
the Battle of Gettysburg and the 237th anniversary of our Independence is
further evidence of the level of ignorance and disrespect some have for our
national character. She and all those who cheered her abomination should be
ashamed and apologize to every serving and retired member of our Armed
Services. But perhaps I ask too much . . .
