[Note: it seems appropriate to share this at this time...]
From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien:
"It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag."
