It is the VETERAN, not the preacher,
who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the VETERAN, not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the VETERAN, not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the VETERAN, not the politician,
Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the VETERAN
who serves under the flag.

It is the VETERAN,
who salutes the Flag.


How ironic, at a parade when the American Flag passed by,
the only person to stand up out of respect was the man in the wheelchair
while the rest of the ungrateful folks sat on their lazy behinds.





God Bless them who serves under the Flag.
