Right now I'm watching the Rolling Thunder opening ceremonies on C-SPAN as I do every year. A few moments ago Chris Noel, an ex-Armed Forces Radio Entertainer, led the group in the Pledge of Allegiance. She finished with "...one nation, UNDIVIDED, with liberty and justice for all." The crowd, made up mostly of Vietnam-era vets, immediately started shouting "UNDER GOD! UNDER GOD!" until she returned to the podium and said "Under God" and apologized. The ceremony then continued with the singing of the National Anthem. Did anybody else catch this? While this was a relatively minor incident, my hat's off to the vets at Rolling Thunder for demanding a correction on the spot. Way to go guys!
