Letter: More disrespect of the flag?

To the Editor:

Vice President Mike Pence left an NFL game before the kickoff because players knelt, with hands over hearts, during the national anthem protesting racial inequity. Why is it acceptable for the uniformed Army officer standing next to Pence, to disrespect our country, flag and anthem by not saluting or placing his hand over his heart?
