Much has been written about NBCâ€™s refusal to accept a paid advertisement from Freedomâ€™s Watch, which offers thanks to the troops serving during the holiday season. According to NBC, the ad was not the problem, but rather it was the ad’s mention of Freedomâ€™s Watchâ€™s website.
Weâ€™ve come to a sad point when saying thank you to our military personnel is considered to be high octane politics, rather than a genuine expression of thanks.
I would hope that all veterans with anything resembling a blog or a website will post the ad to fill the gap created by NBCâ€™s refusal to do so. You see, veterans understand the importance of a simple â€œthank you,â€ even if the management of NBC doesnâ€™t.
