We salute those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

Forty-seven years ago, former Oklahoma Sooners football player Bob Kalsu became the only American pro athlete to be killed in Vietnam. (You can read about him in this 2014 SI profile or this 2013 Grantland piece, and I highly recommend you do.) And while Kalsu will always be remembered for setting aside his NFL career to serve his country, he’s just one of millions who have fought, and thousands who have died, protecting our nation and way of life.

Today we salute all the Sooners and Americans who have sacrificed their lives for all the bankers, lawyers, laborers and college football bloggers back home. Thank you.
