Veterans'  Day
 
 

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 campus 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.
