Inspired by... their sacrifice

Every soldier makes a sacrifice. They deserve your respect, your support and your prayers.

Today we honor those who have made the ulitmate sacrifice.


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 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, not the lawyer,
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.

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.

~Marine Chaplain Father Dennis Edward O'Brien
