"IT IS THE SOLDIER"

It Is the Soldier
"It is the soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us the freedom of the press.
It is the soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us the freedom of speech.
It is the soldier, not the campus organizer,
Who gives us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the soldier, not the lawyer
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the soldier, who salutes the flag,
Who serves under the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protester to burn the flag."

-- Father Dennis Edward O'Brien, Sergeant, USMC

Usually, you'll want to ignore comments with links in them. Anyways, this was a school project that turned into a business. It's a new online auction. You don't have to click it. But it would help me if you would at least keep this link here. It drives my google listing to the top. Thanks for your time.

Also, let me give my salute to America's Soldiers.
