It Is The Warfighter

It is the Warfighter, not the minister
Who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the Warfighter, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of press.

It is the Warfighter, not the poet
Who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the Warfighter, not the campus organizer
Who has given us freedom to protest.

It is the Warfighter, not the lawyer
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.

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

It is the Warfighter who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protester to burn the flag.

RXR’s adaptation of Charles M. Province poem.

A Thankful Remembrance this Memorial Day!

All Gave Some,

Some Gave All.

To all those who served and sacrificed - Thank You!

That Is a great Poem

I have one serious complaint about Memorial Day.  It bothers me beyond words I can us on the forum that so many companies use Memorial Day as a reason to by their products.  I wish there was more reverence connected with the day.

I share your concerns.  To include Christmas (I'm not religious) but, I see how far it has drifted from its original intent, which I wholeheartedly support.

And, I am a Capitalist - a poor Capitalist, but a Capitalist all the same. 😉

Some sellers make huge contributions to military/first responder organizations, so I can't fault most of them.

But, on this day let's remember...

For your tomorrow, we gave our today."~John Maxwell Edmonds.
