    I am a Viet Nam veteran; I wish to thank the Arizona Cardinals, for not only their support of veterans, but all of their public activates to support the various groups throughout the valley and state. We could use many more corporations that are as civic minded as they.
    I think that the Arizona Cardinals have a fine bunch of football veterans themselves. Almost every one of them rings true to the team and to the NFL as a league. The change we have witnessed over the last year has been simply phenomenal, due in fact to these vets and now, also our veteran coaches. This will be a year of change for this organization because of these dedicated men. Perhaps the loss of Mr. Washington will be the catalyst that pushes this team to a Super Bowl within our own stadium. Then Washington can someday reflect upon what that “buzz” cost him — not only the millions of dollars but, of course, that Super Bowl ring that all his teammates will proudly wear for the rest of their lives. Words of a loyal veteran, and fan.

    Ronald H –
    first, thank you for your service to the USA !
    I also think the Cards do a nice job in highlighting a serviceman / woman at each of their home games ,when they are announced in the first quarter, I always stand and applaud !
    I’m grateful for what all our armed forces do for us every day !

    Ronald H. Brooks,

    First of all, thank you for your service to this great nation of ours! And second, and more important I would like to pass on a long overdue WELCOME HOME, to you and all your brothers in arms! Veterans of Nam never got the Homecoming they deserved, and it is sad it is taking 50 years for people to finally start recognizing the sacrifices your generation made! I am a veteran as well, 22 years in the Marine Corps, thought I had retired and moved on to my civilian life, but recently the Marine Corps had other ideas, I have been recalled to active duty for one more tour on the otherside of the big pond to train Afghan forces to prepare them for our withdrawl (this makes tour #6 btwn Iraq & Afghanistan) and all our homecomings we we lauded and applauded and trated like hero’s, especially after returning from Afghanistan a few months after 9/11 and after the initial war in Iraq, and even though Veitnam vets were treated like sh%$, you and your generation were at the front of the line welcoming our generation home, that sir is a true class act!! I have been a lifelong Cardinal fan, and to see the support they give our veterans, and the time and money they put into charities makes me proud to say I’m an Arizona Cardinal fan, no matter the record, they could go winless for the next 5yrs (dont get me wrong, to see them winning and putting a quality team on the field and competing in the toughest division in football, makes me happier than a pig in poop!!) but there support of veterans and charities make me even prouder!! SEMPER FI!! GO CARDS!!
