A Salute to all our Men and Women in Uniform - Thank You for Your Service !

                                IT IS THE SOLDIER

It is the Soldier​, not the minister who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the Soldier​, not the rteporter who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the Soldier​, not the poet who has given us the freedom of speech.

It is the Soldier​, not the campus organizer who has given us the right to protest.

It is the Soldier​, not the lawyer who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the Soldier​, not the politician who has given us the right to vote.

It is the Soldier​, who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.
