It's the soldier not the lawyer who gave us the right to a fair trial It's the soldier not the journalist who gave us freedom of press It's the soldier not the writer who gave us freedom of expression It's the soldier not the student who gave us the right to protest It's the soldier not the politician who defends and protects the constitution It's the soldier who salutes the flag, serves under the flag. Who's coffin is covered with the flag and provides the freedom for those who choose to burn that flag. It's the soldier, the simple individual soldier Who stands at the base of our freedoms.

To me, these truths can never be reiterated enough. When a people forget this hope is lost.

AND, make sure sheeple realize the cost of thier freedom is not free. Those of us who have served know that. Too many of those that have not served thier country take freedom for granted. I love America and even though I am no longer in the military I would still love to defend her if needed. I feel helpless when I think about the assholes that would disarm our military and civilian population. I just came back from watching "We Were Soldiers" at the theatre. I've not been so moved since "Saving Private Ryan". How can anyone be so stupid as to realize the sacrefice that the military made and continue to make for thier country. It pains me.
