I really enjoy going to the rodeo and I think it was wonderful that the rodeo committee chose to honor our veterans and current military by devoting a section of the rodeo to acknowledge them.
Unfortunately I was appalled at the reaction of at least half the people in attendance — they sat throughout the entire segment honoring our military. Some of those same people also sat when the United States flag was presented, but did not hesitate to rise when asked to do so by the announcer to encourage the bulls.
This lack of respect for the men and women who risk their lives every day so that we can have the freedom we enjoy daily is totally disgusting.
