It Is The Soldier

It is the soldier, not the reporter
who has given us freedom of the press.
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 protester to burn the flag.
Fr. Denis Edward O'Brien, USMC
