"We have gone forth from our shores repeatedly over the last hundred years and we’ve done this as recently as the last year in Afghanistan and put wonderful young men and women at risk, many of whom have lost their lives, and we have asked for nothing except enough ground to bury them in...." -- Colin Powell, responding to the former Archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey, at the World Economic Forum. Former Sen. Fred Thompson quoted this in his recent TV commercial in support of our troops.
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 the freedom to demonstrate.
[It is the soldier, not the lawyer,
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.]
It is the soldier,
Who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protestor to burn the flag.
(Authorship of this poem has been attributed to either Father Denis O'Brien, USMC or (with the additional couplet added in brackets above) to Charles M. Province.)
