The Soldier

This was taken from The Contact the magazine of Vietnam Veterans
It was written by Father Dennis O’Brian.

The Soldier

It is the soldier, not the reporter,who gives us the freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet, who gives us the freedom of speech.

It is the soldier, not the campus organiser, who gives us the
freedom to demonstrate.

It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag
and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protestor to
burn the flag.
