It is the veteran…

It is the VETERAN, not the preacher,
who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the VETERAN, not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.


It is the VETERAN, not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the VETERAN, not the politician,
Who has given us the right to vote. 

It is the VETERAN,
who salutes the Flag,
who serves under the Flag, 

whose coffin is draped by the Flag.

And for those who have passed; eternal rest grant them O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.  Veterans know that the oath of allegiance has no expiration date.

Despite what messes politicians make that erode our liberty, we still are the a nation that still enjoy’s a freedom unfound in most of the world.  For that, thank a veteran, because he or she answered a call and stood a post to make it so.
