Honoring All Who Served

It was a veteran, not a reporter, Who guaranteed freedom of the press.

It was a veteran, not a poet, Who guaranteed freedom of speech.

It was a veteran, not a campus organizer, Who guaranteed freedom to demonstrate.

It was a veteran, not a salesman, Who guaranteed freedom to own property.

It was a veteran, not a travel agent, Who guaranteed freedom to travel.

It was a veteran, not a politician, Who guaranteed freedom to vote.

It was a veteran who salutes the Flag,  Risks it all for the Flag,

And who is buried beneath the Flag.

J.L. Sager

“Out nation honors her sons and daughters who answered the call to defend a country they never knew and a people they never met.”   Veterans who served and those who died knew the meaning of freedom.

Thank a veteran for their service and honor those that sacrificed for you freedom!
