*Remember~"It's the Soldier, not the reporter who gives you freedom of the press. It's the Soldier, not the poet who gives you freedom of speech. It's the Soldier not the organizer, who allows you to demonstrate. It's the Soldier, who salutes the Flag, whose coffin is draped with the Flag, who allows the protestor to burn the Flag! Thank you to all the Soldiers and their families for their sacrifice."
