Alma Otter / Champ Mascot

I want them to imagine this: 100 years from now some school will be trotting out mascots of our soldiers who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan...

... If you’re not going to use Native American imagery because it’s disrespectful, don’t glorify war or make caricatures of men and women who had more guts to serve their country than most of the Board of Trustees.
Thank you for hitting the nail on the head.

Turning combat veterans from modern wars into mascots is an actual sick idea. It's the paradoxical, unholy lovechild of military worship and insensitivity to the plight of veterans, war casualties, and the families & friends of casualties.
