Veterans Rock!

Thanks to Gary Bauer for sharing this cool poem to honor our veterans.

"It is the veteran, not the preacher, who has given you freedom of religion.
It is the veteran, not the reporter, who has given you freedom of the
press.
It is the veteran, not the poet, who has given you freedom of speech.
It is the veteran, not the protester, who has given you freedom to
assemble.
It is the veteran, not the lawyer, who has given you the right to a fair
trial.
It is the veteran, not the politician, who has given you the right to vote.
It is the veteran, who salutes the Flag, who serves under the Flag, whose
coffin is draped by the Flag."

And, although it doesn't rhyme, I would add the greatest honor to the God we trust:

It is God, not the veteran, who created a nation such as ours. "In God we trust"

God bless our Veterans!

And a special thanks to my dad who served in the US Navy during the Korean War. Thanks Dad!
