Veterans Day

History teaches us that war begins when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap. – Ronald Reagan

DF-SC-84-11899It 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 protester to burn the flag.

-Rev. Denis Edward O’Brien, USMC
