COMMANDER'S COMMENTS

 Commander Ray Ewing

Permit me executive privilege in this column to express my personal indignation, and deep concern of what I believe is inappropriate and disrespectful conduct by some folks, supposedly

protesting social injustice.

 

Again these are my thoughts, my opinions, and may not necessarily be those of all our membership.

I believe we all agree that we have a constitutional right to protest. I also hope   we would agree that there are appropriate and inappropriate ways to do so.

Disrespect for our flag and the country it stands for is inappropriate. I believe this issue and other unfit, sometimes even illegal and violent activities, all taken in the guise of protest, are tearing our country apart.
