A soldier bows in salute to heartfelt words

It was the soldier, that gave you freedom of the press not the reporter

It was the soldier, not the poet that gave you freedom of expression

It was the soldier that gave you freedom of speech, not the campus organizer

It is the soldier that salutes the flag It is the soldier that serves under the flag

And it is the soldier whose coffin is draped by the flag

So that others may have the right to bum the flag
