Proud to Serve

 
 

"Itís the soldier, not the reporter, that gives you freedom of the press. Itís the soldier, not the poet, that gives you freedom of speech. Itís the soldier, not the campus organizer, that allows you to demonstrate. Itís the soldier who salutes the flag, serves the flag, whose coffin is draped with the flag, that allows the protester to burn the flag. Shame! Shame!

"Lord, hold our troops in Your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts of heroism they perform for us in our time of need. Press close to them the hope of just coming home safe."
