Recently read these comments in an email and it sparked great interest:
It's the Veteran, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press.
It's the Veteran, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech.
It's the Veteran, not the community organizer, who gives us the freedom to demonstrate.
It's the Military 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.
Today is a new day, take time to thank those who are willing to serve so that we have the freedoms we do. Next time you stand to salute the Flag or sing the anthem remember those who are serving in dangerous environments because they believe that you are worth it. Thanks to all our service men and women who so diligently serve. God bless you.
