Thanks to Jim Forbes for sharing this letter with us that was written by Colonel Jeffery Powers (ret) that he wrote to the NFL Commissioner regarding athletes who disrespect America and the men who have bravely fought and those who died for our country. This letter was published by Colonel Allen West on his website and you will find the link and Colonel Power’s letter below. (If you are on facebook, please post the Allen West link on your facebook page.) I have also included the extremely impressive bio of Colonel Powers, one of our country’s real heroes. Nancy

Marine OWNS the NFL with BRUTAL letter to commissioner
I missed the ’90-’91 season because I was with a battalion of Marines in Desert Storm. 14 of my wonderful Marines returned home with the American Flag draped across their lifeless bodies. My last conversation with one of them, Sgt Garrett Mongrella, was about how our Giants were going to the Super Bowl. He never got to see it.
Many friends, Marines, and Special Forces Soldiers who worked with or for me through the years returned home with the American Flag draped over their coffins.
