The stepfather of a soldier who was killed in Afghanistan in 2013 has had enough of NFL player’s disrespecting the men and women who fight and die for the United States; walking out of a recent football game but leaving behind pictures of his heroic stepson.
“U.S. Marine Cpl. David M. Sonka was killed during a combat operation alongside his K9 named Flex. Shortly after his death in 2013, his family was presented with the flag that was draped over his coffin. That flag is displayed in his family’s home as a constant reminder of his sacrifice,” writes a local news station.
Glenn Beine, the fallen soldier’s stepfather, decided to stage a protest of his own at a recent Denver Bronco’s football game, saying “My feeling is, they’re disrespecting David and everybody else that has defended it.”
Before exiting the stadium at the conclusion of the anthem, Beine left behind a poster; featuring images and the story of Marine Cpl. David Sonka.
“I’m protesting your protest,” he added.
