It is the Soldier, not the ministerWho has given us freedom of religion.

It is the Soldier, not the reporterWho has given us freedom of the press.

It is the Soldier, not the poetWho has given us freedom of speech.

It is the Soldier, not the campus organizerWho has given us freedom to protest.

It is the Soldier, not the lawyerWho has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the Soldier, not the politicianWho 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.
