It Has Always Been the Soldier

It is the Soldier, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press; 

It is the Solder, not the poet who has given us the freedom of speech; 

It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us freedom to demonstrate 

It is the Soldier-- Who salutes the flag; Who serves beneath the flag; and whose coffin is draped by the flag, 

Who allows the protestor to burn the flag.
