Thank the Soldier:
It's the Soldier, not the Reporter who gives you the freedom of the press.
It's the Soldier, not the Poet who gives you the freedom of speech.
It's the Soldier, not the Campus organizer who allows you to demonstrate.
It's the Soldier, not the Lawyer who gives you the right to a fair trial
It's the Soldier, who salutes the Flag, serves the Flag, whose coffin is draped with the Flag that allows the protester to burn the Flag!!!
