“As a service member myself, who stood up to defend and uphold what that flag represented for our constitution and the rights and liberties that we get in this country, it’s disheartening to see someone who has never served this country take a knee and stand against what so many of my fellow brothers and sisters, one of my friends I actually just buried this last week who was killed in Iraq, gave the ultimate sacrifice,” said Kistner.

Kistner served in the U.S. Marine Corps for nine years.
