Beloved basketball legend Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and seven other people were killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California on Sunday
Sure most of you guys heard what happened to Kobe Bryant yesterday and the other eight lives lost but what Major General John Evans said about Kobe Bryant this morning, "Lots of people mourning a basketball player this morning. I think I’ll use my energy to remember SPC Moore and his Family." Seriously General?? I get his point about the fact that troops dying for our country is not highly represented in the media but his comments are way too abrasive, especially one coming from the Commanding Officer of Cadet Command. You would expect better from a two star general. Of course we will respect and thank the soldier for his service, but Kobe Bryant helped his community too both on and off the court. He has a family too. When we start comparing deaths and their impacts then we have really lost our touch in humanity. Beyond disappointed in the Major General making the wrong comment at the wrong time.
