Retired Senior Master Sergeant Oscar Rodriguez

There’s no doubt if you’re a patriotic American or if you’ve worn the uniform, this brief video clip is extremely disturbing.

Senior Master Sergeant Oscar Rodriguez (Ret.) has been asked countless times to perform his rendition of the “flag-folding speech” at military and civic events, including retirement ceremonies.

This retirement ceremony for Master Sergeant Charles Roberson who requested the services of Rodriguez after hearing him perform his stirring rendition of the speech explaining the flag's symbolic history, was one such occasion. The original speech was modified by the politically correct crowd in 2005, removing the word “God,” but Rodriquez continues to include it within his narration, even though it is apparently forbidden on military bases.

On the day of the ceremony, the squadron’s commanding officer, Lieutenant Colonel Michael Sovitsky, sent out the goon patrol and forcibly assaulted Rodriguez as he was in the midst of performing his stirring rendition.

Thankfully, the law firm of First Liberty Institute is representing Rodriguez, who simply wants the Air Force to apologize. If you’re wondering what all the fuss was about, here is the sentence that created the chaos, “God bless our flag. God bless our troops. God bless America.”
