Why did the comets take down the military stuff around the arena it is a veterans memorial . I was at the UC game last night they were gone. What kinda carp is that. If your a Veteran going to these games and don't say anything your wrong. So the team is anti Military that's what I see

It is worth looking into. I can understand taking down things to accomplish the renovations; but, they should have been replaced before the Aud was reopened.
Someone better come forward and explain what happened, and what will be done to make it right, before Veterans Day; Nov 11th.

When I saw that my PTSD went into overdrive. I was boiling, and had to slam down a few Xanax. They have no respect for the debilitating problems we brought back with us. I can't go back. It's too stressful and I could snap at any minute. Gotta run... incoming!

Oh, sure. This is so typical. Because we have PTSD we're treated like lepers. Listen, bucko, PTSD is not a crock, it's a real aliment. My VA check confirms it. The US Government believes me.

We want our flags and stuff back. We like flags, medals, ribbons and especially that VA disability check.

They're being replaced by a large Obama mural. It is going to be breath taking when it's completed.

Flags were removed from around the top of the Aud because it cannot withstand the push & pull when the wind blows. The roof wasn't designed to hold flag poles.

That's their story and they're sticking to it. The roof would hold a tank. I call shenanigans.
