It is the SOLDIER, not the reporter, who preserves the freedom of the press. And is the SOLDIER, not the poet, Who protects our freedom of speech. It is the SOLDIER, not the campus organizer, Who puts his life on the line To give others the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the SOLDIER, Who salutes the Flag, Who serves beneath the Flag And whose coffin is draped by the Flag, Who protects the protesters right to burn the Flag. ~ Father Dennis O'Brian, USMC Freedom is NEVER FREE In lieu of flowers, please send donations in the name of PFC.
