being a ex soldier of 25yrs british army i love this quote <br /><br />in peacetime everyone hates a soldier <br />in war cant do enough for him/her <br /><br />It's the soldier, not the reporter who has given us <br />Freedom of the Press. <br />It's the soldier, not the poet, who has given us <br />Freedom of Speech. <br />It's the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the <br />Freedom to Demonstrate. <br />It's the soldier, not the lawyer, who has given us the <br />Right to a Fair Trial. <br />It's the soldier who salutes the flag, serves under the flag and <br />whose coffin is draped by the flag, <br />Who gives the protestor the right to burn the flag. <br /><br />~Father Dennis Edward O'Brien, USMC
