“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.”
Author: Charles Michael Province, U.S. Army
Let us all remember our veterans and their families for the sacrifices they have made for us and our country.
Happy Veteran’s Day!
