What have we done to deserve to be protected by Men like this?

Posted by Mike O on May 9, 2009

As I watch the news on the daily basis, I only marvel at the fact that men such as this feel serving this nation as being worth this level of sacrifice.  God bless him and everyone of our brave military!

It Has Always Been The Soldier

It is the soldier,
not the President who gives us democracy.

It is the soldier,
not the Congress who takes care of us.

It is the soldier,
not the Reporter who has given us Freedom of Press.

It is the soldier,
not the Poet who has given us Freedom of Speech.

It is the soldier,
not the campus [community] Organizer who
has given us the Freedom to Demonstrate.

It is the soldier,
who salutes the flag;
who serves beneath the flag,
and whose coffin is draped by the flag,
that allows the protester to burn the flag.

~ Father Dennis O’Brien, US Marine Corp. Chaplain

  1. How very true. And those on the left quickly forget this. They are always seeking to cut funding for the military and often condemn soldiers for their actions in defending our country.
