What is a Verteran?

This post is to show my respect for all the veterans out there who served unselfishly, who gave unconditionally, and who sacrificed unrelentingly.. Thank you… Booyah and Semper Fidelis ________________________________________

It 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,
to be buried by the flag,
so the protester can burn the Flag.
