It is the veteran...not the preacher...who gives us freedom of religion.

It is the veteran...not the reporter...who gives us freedom of the press.

It is the veteran...not the poet...who gives us freedom of speech.

It is the veteran...not the campus organizer...who gives us the freedom to assemble.

It is the veteran...not the lawyer...who gives us the right to a fair trial.

It is the veteran...not the politician...who gives us the right to vote.

And it is the veteran who salutes the flag...who serves under the flag...and whose coffin is draped by the flag.
