Respect For The National Anthem

Virginia Tech head men’s basketball coach Buzz Williams didn't like some of the fooling around he was seeing from some of his players while the National Anthem was being played before their games. He decided to assemble the players and tell them what the anthem means, who it represents and how they are to act while it is being performed. To help drive his point, he invited 20 veterans from the area including Army, Navy, Air Force and the Marines all represented, World War II to the present, including Easley Smith, a WWII pilot in his 90s. Watch the video to see coach get his point across to these young men.
