"It is the Soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of press.
It is the Soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer who gives 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 allows the protester to burn the flag.”
-Father Dennis Edward O’Brien
I have to agree. Our military gets very little recognition for their sacrifices, and are killed daily without a mention by the news media other than by a number added to the weekly killed in action reports.
