November 11, 2011 Veterans Day
In honor of all who currently serve the United States of America in the armed forces at home and abroad...
In remembrance of all who, in service to the United States of America, gave the last full measure of devotion...
The American 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 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 gives us freedom.
