PETITION: Keep NFL reps off our military bases. The NFL maintains a “Corporate Policy” of Condoning Disrespect to our Flag. View attached 5 Gold Star comments. (Put a Like on this post if you agree. It will be sent to Mil Base HQs planning to host NFL reps. Forward this to ALL).
Vet:
“It stands for the ultimate sacrifice for as a Cdr in Iraq, the flag was draped over seven of my Soldiers as they left Iraq in body bags. They arrived home to grieving family who universally were comforted by the honor of having our nations colors draped over their coffin”.
Gold Star Mother:
“When the NFL kneels...they might as well be spitting in my husband and my children’s faces. And spitting on my son’s grave!! Please reconsider which side you want to be on... God blessed America I just pray He saves her”.
Gold Star Wife:
“I have had the sad experience of being handed a folded flag. None of those players on that field can understand how that feels. They are able to play a game and get paid overinflated salaries because service members are willing to die to protect our rights”.
.
Gold Star Father
“The NFL is dead to us.”

Gold Star Fiancé
“My fiancé came home draped under our flag. He gave his life protecting the Country that flag flies over. I won't see it disgraced or support anyone who will!
Gold Star Son:
“I could never agree with the use of the national anthem and flag as a method of protest. The flag draped the casket of my father — I won’t agree with a method of protest that uses the flag in any manner except reverence and respect“.

President Trump:
"You have to stand proudly for the national anthem. Or you shouldn't be playing, you shouldn't be there. Maybe you shouldn't be in the country.”

“There is a time and place for civil debate, and wearing team jerseys and using sporting events to disrespect our country doesn’t wash with millions of military veterans who have and continue to wear real uniforms on real battlefields around the globe.”
4-Star Admiral Harris, Pearl Harbor Attack Ceremony:
'You can bet that the men and women we honor today - and those who died that fateful morning 75 years ago - never took a knee and never failed to stand whenever they heard our national anthem being played.”
Retired 4-Star Admiral Bill McRaven, the former Commander of U.S. Special Operations Command: “They should recognize that by sitting in protest to the flag they are disrespecting everyone who sacrificed to make this country what it is today.”
Retired Marine Col. Jeffrey A. Powers
“Multi-millionaire athletes who never did anything in their lives but play a game are essentially spitting in the faces and on the graves of real men, men who have actually done something for this country”.
Full Colonel:
“Few things disgust me more than senior personnel abandoning those they are honored to lead. The lack of integrity, honor and commitment to duty and members displayed by USAA will not be forgotten.....even should the NFL protests stop tomorrow”.
Full Colonel
FULLY CONCUR.  USAA needs to A. Relieve its advertiser - NOW. It needs to publish a statement tearing the NFL apart - NOW. The NFL is a disgrace to the USA. It further is an insult to every service member who served since 1775 in EVERY Branch of the Armed Forces”.
Full Colonel:
”Please stop paying the NFL to disrespect our veterans’ service and the flag for which so many fought and died. Please do not support organizations that don't share our values of service and sacrifice for the United States.”
Col (Name), USMC (Ret)
Full Colonel:
“I believe USAA should stop supporting the NFL - we who have served and bleed for this country desire better”.
COL (Name), Ret
Full Colonel:
”I sincerely ask USAA to immediately stop any sponsorship of the NFL. NFL players kneeling is disrespectful to my service, the service of all veterans, and this country.
Do not provide a dime to this disrespectful organization nor be associated in any way with it”
Full Colonel:
“USAA, I'm very close to searching for another insurance company that respects our Military, National Anthem, and our Flag. Pull out of NFL sponsorship or many of us military members will find another company.
Sincerely,
(Name), Colonel, US Army Retired
Lieutenant Colonel:
“How any sentient person can construe sitting or kneeling during the Presentation of the Colors and National Anthem as "honoring and appreciating the military community," is a complete mystery to me”.
Lieutenant Colonel, Retired
The NFL is the only sports league in the world whose athletes show Disrespect to the flag of their country. The Dems have come a long way since the days of President John F. Kennedy: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country”.
Do a Facebook search on “USAA NFL Petition” and you will see a selection of the thousands of these comments collected on the USAA community forum from the entire military community calling on USAA to end their sponsorship of the NFL.
USAA refused to end their NFL sponsorship so we started working with the CFPB and OCC on USAA’s scams. In Jan 19, the CFPB fined USAA $15.5 million. In Feb 19, the OCC issued USAA a cease-and-desist order for “engaging in unsafe or unsound banking practices”. Payback Time.
On those 2 USAA fines, do a Google search on the following news articles from the San Antonio Express News:
1) Headline: USAA Bank must pay $15.5M over banking-rule violations
Jan 3, 2019
2) Headline: Bank regulators take action against USAA Bank
Feb 15, 2019
PAYBACK TIME!
Thanks to everyone for the great support we are receiving with this Petition. Seeing the reps of these Kneelers come on our mil bases to increase NFL profits is very offensive to those who have sacrificed so much. NFL offices follow me so they’re monitoring, as well as military
RetiredArmy2011
“I propose this petition be expanded to call for a Special Meeting IAW Article II to not only force a stop to the NFL sponsorship and advertising, but also to replace the USAA Board of Directors, who obviously have forgotten that they work for the membership”.
Great comment messaged to me: “Why are they allowed on the bases? All the Gov’t has to do is not allow them. Call Trump! I am serious. Bases should only be for active military and retired or mustered out honorable discharged. And their families that have post exchange passes.
@USO @DeptofDefense
USO, you are letting the NFL buy their way on our military bases and those who sacrificed the most are offended by it. Go up to our NFL Petition Header post (growing daily) and read the string of Gold Star comments. Tell the NFL to keep their dirty money
@shopmyexchange @DeptofDefense
AAFES, Go up to our NFL Petition Header tweet (growing daily) and read the string of Gold Star comments. We encourage you to not let the NFL buy their way in our military stores, it is very offensive to those who have sacrificed so much.
AAFES, what is upsetting is that when soldiers complain about the NFL being in “our” military stores, the Military Police throw the soldiers out of “their” military store and the NFL reps get to stay in the store to increase their profits. All in the name of money. Disgraceful!

I served as Officer-In-Charge of the 18th Airborne Corps Military Burial Detail at Fort Bragg, NC. I had the responsibility of handing that folded flag to too many grieving family members. The High Cost of Freedom is the Price Paid By a Brave Few. Let us Never Forget them.
Also do a Facebook search on “USAA Scams” and read 14 scams of USAA on how they literally steal from and abuse their members.

We are a purple heart family....haven't watched a game in years and burned every piece of Dallas Cowboy gear I had.
To this day, the NFL maintains a “corporate policy” of condoning disrespect to the American flag and disrespect to what military personnel stand for and salute by any NFL player at any time. Therefore, the NFL should not be allowed to associate with the U.S. military in any way.

Update on our 3 Fallen Marine Heroes killed in Afghan on 8 Apr. The picture below is of Sgt. Maj. Ronald Green presenting the U.S. flag to Scott Hines during the funeral of his son, USMC Staff Sgt. Benjamin Hines, at Arlington National Cemetery. Rest In Peace Brother. Semper Fi.
