I think a solider should carry the flag. I am also a veteran and fought for it.
If there is a Veteran at the Olympics they should always be the one carrying the flag If no veteran is available an active duty member of the Armed Forces should do it.
My son and two grandsons are in the Army…..I just want someone of the Armed Forces to carry the flag!
Our Heros! United States military why question it!
I believe that Veterans who participate in the Olympics should carry the Flag. They fought for that right!!
I believe we should stick to the way the flag bearer has always been picked, each team (ski, cross country, etc) selects a nominee and than the nominees are voted on by the team capitains and the flag bearer is elected this way. WHy change something that has been in place for a number of Olympics?
I am also a vet and feel an Active duty military member should carry the flag. There is still the closing ceremony, unless BJK has that spot all locked up.
