Was fan enthusiasm resting on some sort of patriotic house of cards?

There might be more respect for the We’re supporting veterans by standing for the National Anthem folks if they seemed to question decades of undeclared/unwon wars overseas. The Department of Defense track record goes back to 1949.

Maybe the best part of the games was the military and flag appreciation rituals, fighter jet flyovers promoting the urban legend that The Troops are defending American freedoms, surprise reunions for Troops returning from undeclared/unwon wars overseas, etc.

“I’m for free speech because that’s what our men and women of the united forces have fought for.”

Hey school teachers– where did this idea come from? Were US troops sent to Vietnam so that Americans could be free to send letters to the editor?

Is there any case in which the US Armed Forces have been sent to distant lands on a mission to protect freedom of speech?

DOD and NFL dive in to show support:

“It was a great honor and privilege for the Navy to be responsible for the 12th Man flag,” said Rear Admiral Gary Mayes, Commander, Navy Region Northwest, the Seahawks’ adopted military unit last season. “We did have the flag under the seas on submarines, we had it on aircraft carriers, so we’ve had it under the sea, on the sea, and also over the sea. Again, it was a great pleasure, and now we will turn it over to the 1st Special Forces Group — don’t screw it up.”

Don’t screw it up? Was there any 12th Man flags aboard the 2 Navy ships that crashed this summer- resulting in the loss of 17 lives?
