Thank a Soldier

I ran across this over at Black Five. During this busy Holliday Season [As if the rest of the year wasn't busy - ed.] take the time to send a little message of encouragement to the men and women who make it possible for us to have the luxury of playing on the internet.

It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of press.
It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech.
It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
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.

Father Dennis Edward O'Brien, USMC chaplain and Guadalcanal veteran of WW-II
