Thank you, veterans who have fought and served for our God-given freedoms! While we are observing Veterans' Day here in the U.S., I do include gratitude towards our allies as well. We are deeply grateful to you all and your families!
It is the soldier, not the reporter, Who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the soldier, not the poet, Who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the soldier, not the organizer, Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the soldier, Who salutes the flag, Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag, Who allows the protestor to burn the flag.
