Chargers will “SALUTE THE TROOPS” tonight against Kaepernick and 49ers

NFL will US Military for paid patriotism scandal

Chargers are going all out for their Military when they play the 49ers and Kaepernick

The San Diego Chargers are all about their military forces. They should be too considering how many military facilities are near by.  Well this week they play the San Francisco 49ers and Colin Kaepernick.  To make a presence felt for the Military the Chargers are going all in.

According to, the Chargers are investing some major money to put on an amazing ceremony for their military.

A color guard representing the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines and 240 soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines holding a massive “super flag” on the field aid the visual aspect of the performance of “The Star Spangled Banner” at Quaalcom Stadium in San Diego.

“At halftime the Chargers will recognize six Vietnam War veterans as a remembrance of the 50th anniversary of the war,” the team announced. “The Chargers will also have wounded warriors as special guests and a patriotic fireworks show to wrap up half-time.”

The 28th annual “Salute to the Military” also features Petty Officer 1st Class Steven Powell singing “God Bless America” during the game. Before the game, a group of Navy Seals plans to parachute down upon Quaalcom Stadium and a Marine Corps Band provides entertainment.

This is going to be intense. It sounds like the Chargers are 100 percent behind their Military, and not so much Colin Kaepernick.

With Kaepernick’s latest saga with the Police Socks, this could get interesting. I wonder if the NFL will air it LIVE?
