"Remember (It was the Veteran)"

Author Unknown

IT WAS THE VETERAN,
Not a reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.

IT WAS THE VETERAN,
Not a poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

IT WAS THE VETERAN,
Not a lawyer, who has given us the right to fair trial.

IT WAS THE VETERAN,
Not the campus organizer,who has given us the right to demonstrate.

AND IT IS THE VETERAN,
Who salutes the flag,
Who served under the flag,
And whose coffin is drapped by the flag!

Who allows the protestors to burn the flag?
