Is This Veterans Day ‘Salute’ Offensive?

Last week, NFL players wore camouflage-patterned stickers on their helmets and coaches wore ribbons attached to their shirts. Well, except for Mike Shanahan, head coach of the Washington Redskins. Was that a slight against Veterans? As Travis Waldron at notes, there aren't any easy answers here. Native Americans have historically volunteered to serve at a per capita rate higher than any other ethnic group. But the same U.S. Military previously sought out to destroy Native Nations. We need only consider the Wounded Knee Massacre to start. But the image shown above is what the Washington club is running on their website. Is this offensive? Readers are encourage to comment.
