Veteran's Day 2008


Remember them we should,
Remember them we must,
Thank them, always.

*******************

IT IS THE SOLDIER

It is the Soldier, not the minister
Who has given us freedom of religion.

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 protest.

It is the Soldier, not the lawyer
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.

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

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.

-Charles M Province, US Army

Truer words were never spoken! Maybe someday the DemocRats will come to understand it. Thanks to every veteran for your service and sacrifice!

Lest we forget.

My heartfelt thanks to the brave men and women who enlist to serve their country and volunteer to fight the injustices in the world.

May all veterans be graced with Peace.
