Cochran: Veteran comments on free speech

The Durango Herald - 12/28/2017

As a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, I am vehemently opposed to NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem of the country that provides them a home where they make millions of dollars and enjoy freedoms and a lifestyle unusual to most people on the planet.

While I am opposed to their lamentable, despicable opinions of the United States, I am happy to have fought for, and I devoutly support, their right to exhibit those opinions as boldly as they please. The same goes for Klan rallies and flag burning.

Free speech lets us know who the idiots are.

Merry Christmas,

John David Cochran
