If you enjoy your freedoms, thank a Veteran


Despite what you might think, it is the Veterans of our country, not the preachers who have given us freedom of religion

It our veterans who have given us freedom of the press, not the reporters who write the news stories.

It is the veterans, not the poets, who have given us freedom of speech

Our veterans have given us the freedom to assemble, not the campus organizers

It is our veterans, not lawyers, who have given us the freedom of a fair trial

Our veterans,not our politicians, who have given us the right to vote.

It is our veterans who:

Salute our Flag
Serves under our Flag
And
Who are buried under the flag

Gentle .... you keep saying it all sooooo right!!!!!

once again, we support all you are saying .... sad, that it is lost on so many know it alls who think freedom is a "right of their birth" ... and not a "privilige" paid for by others .. .not by them. ... i always salute your flag which i also love ... and mine ... even tho we have become a nation mainly of hippies

u see, .....my daddy died fighting for what so many think is their birthright.

I agree! Our veterans don't get enough credit! I'm proud to say my grandfather fought in WWII & his father in WWI! If it wasn't for them, who knows where we'd be today. Good post !

Hugs to you Gentle!


Peace,
Pickles

So why is it that we don't hear more from our veterns? The draft doggers that went to college now run the media ,is it any wonder we don't hear more from these brave heros?
