Decorated Army veteran Noah Galloway wants San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to know that black soldiers died for the American flag.

“As a veteran I think that maybe that was, uh, he could have done another thing. He could have done other things to really express that he wasn’t happy with the way things are going with his ideas and stuff. That I think as a veteran — he could have chosen a different route,” Galloway told TMZ Sports(RELATED: Millionaire NFL Quarterback Has Mind-Boggling Reason For Refusal To Stand For National Anthem)

The former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant also added, “I’ve served with a lot of people, African-Americans in the military that have lost their lives under that flag. So that’s a reason to think about.” (RELATED: Hookstead’s Hot Take: America Stood Up For Colin Kaepernick. He Should Stand For The Flag)
