It Is The Veteran!! Sent Along by Jerry Deren With Thanks. 2016 11 11. Veteran’s Day in the USA

US FlagIt is the VETERAN , not the preacher,
who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the VETERAN , not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the VETERAN , not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the VETERAN , not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to assemble.
It is the VETERAN , not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the VETERAN , not the politician,
Who has given us the right to vote.
It is the VETERAN ,
who salutes the Flag, 
It is the VETERAN ,
who serves under the Flag,
ETERNAL REST GRANT UNTO THEM,
O LORD, AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON THEM. 
At the going down of the sun,
And in the morning
We will remember them
  We can be very proud of our young men and women in the service no matter where they serve.
God Bless them all!!!
