News this week of Nike featuring NFL player Colin Kaepernick, as part of their "Just Do It" campaign has caused an uproar across the country.
Although many service members have taken to social media to express their support for Kaepernick's right to free speech, IJR posted an article yesterday with Bottle Breacher CEO's Eli Crane's thoughts on this. As a former Navy Seal who served our Country for many years, he is among many servicemen and women that are upset with Nike's advertisement.
"It is ridiculous for Nike and Kaepernick to claim the football player had sacrificed everything for his protests during the National Anthem." Eli Crane shares with IJR.
Crane sacrificed while being deployed away from family in a foreign country several times, but is also very aware that many have even sacrificed their lives for Kaepernick's right to freedom of speech, including friends he served with.
