It Has Always Been the Soldier:
It is the Soldier, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press;
It is the Solder, not the poet who has given us the freedom of speech;
It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us 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 protester to burn the flag.
And… Happy Birthday – United States Marines – November 10th – 237th Birthday.
