It Is The Soldier…
not the minister who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the Soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the Soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us freedom to protest. It is the Soldier, not the lawyer who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the Soldier, not the politician who has given us the right to vote.
It is the Soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protester to burn the flag.

VFW: “Honor the dead, by helping the living”
|Veterans Day is Saturday and already over 1 million troops have served in the current war on terror. More than 2,600 of these brave men and women have been killed and over 20,000 have been injured in the line of duty.Despite these great sacrifices, Congress recently tried to slash the budget for the VA’s traumatic brain injury care centers that many of our wounded troops are counting on.
Our veterans should not have to fight for the high quality healthcare they’ve earned.
That’s why the VFW is launching Healthcare for Our Heroes, a month-long Veterans Day campaign to demand full funding of veterans’ healthcare and benefits.
