Much has been written about NBC’s refusal to accept a paid advertisement from Freedom’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 Freedom’s Watch’s website.
We’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 NBC’s refusal to do so. You see, veterans understand the importance of a simple “thank you,” even if the management of NBC doesn’t.
