At last night’s Town Council meeting, I had the misfortune to witness one of the most disgraceful acts by Miriam Morgan-Alexander during the Pledge of Allegiance. Miriam Morgan-Alexander was wearing a “Howdy Doody” hat and rendered a phony hand salute during the Pledge of Allegiance.
I have sat through a year of Morgan-Alexander wearing a non-military beret with pins on it and rendering a hand salute during our Pledge of Allegiance without saying a word. After serving this great nation for forty years both in the Army and then as a Department of Defense civilian, I am proud of this nation and our flag which signifies our freedom. I am proud to be a veteran who has defended this flag for the best part of my life.
I can honestly say that I personally believe that Miriam Morgan-Alexander is a phony, a wannabe who gives a bad name to true vets who have protected this great nation and those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
This total lack of respect for our nation colors leaves a terrible taste in my mouth.
You do not render a military hand salute while wearing a “HOWDY DOODY” hat. Miriam Morgan-Alexander, please no more attempts at rendering a hand salute while wearing non-military headgear.
