It is the Veteran!

           MEMORIAL DAY

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 salutes the  Flag,

  It is the VETERAN who serves under the  Flag,

ETERNAL REST  GRANT THEM O LORD, AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE  UPON THEM.

  1. A great tribute to those who serve and have served on this Memorial Day.
