Veteran's Day 2010



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 politician,
Who ensures our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
Whose coffin is draped by the flag.*

God bless all those who are ready to give their all and those that have given their all.  May the Lord's face shine upon you and your families.
