It’s the Soldier, not the reporter,
Who has given us the Freedom of the Press.
It’s the Soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us the Freedom of Speech.
It’s the Soldier, not the politicians,
Who ensures our right to Life,
Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
It’s the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag.
If you care to offer the smallest token
of recognition and appreciation for the Military,
Please pray for our men and women
Who have served and are currently serving our country
And pray for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.
