Courage Under Fire – Alejandro Villanueva Stands For The Anthem
Alejandro Villanueva’s displayed, this time for the NFL audience to witness, the courage that earned him the Bronze Star for rescuing fellow soldiers pinned down by enemy fire in Afgahnistan. While Alejandro was standing proudly for our national anthem, the rest of the Steelers team stayed inside the locker room in protest. A protest made possible by the very freedom that proud American soldiers such as Alejandro Villanueva provide.
Coach Tomlin felt he had to criticise Alejandro for not protesting with the rest of the team.
Apparently Tomlin thinks free speech is only appropriate when the speech bolsters his viewpoint.
Alejandro, I salute you!
