First, thanks to the veterans for their service. In today's Patriots - Bills game, they showed the new POW/MIA seat at the stadium in Foxboro. I don't know if I have ever been prouder of the team I have followed for 40+ years.

Patriots unveil POW/MIA Memorial at Gillette Stadium

If you are not familiar with Bob Kraft, Patriots owner, he is a great guy. Was a season ticket holder during some of the worst Patriots seasons. At one point, the owner was one of the Busch family and it seemed as if the team would move to St Louis (the Cardinals had gone to AZ and the Rams were still in LA). Kraft bought the team and turned it around. Built a winning team and a new stadium...

At the games there was often a guy with a sign stating that he wanted the Patriots to retire #40 in honor of the patriot Pat Tillman. In a way, this is better as it honors all who served. Pat would probably have preferred this....

Every team should do something.

Not surprised that Pats owner Bob Kraft does this. One of the classiest owners in the league!
