    "It is the soldier, not the poet, who gives us freedom of speech.
    It is the soldier, not the reporter, who gives us freedom of the press.
    It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who gives us freedom to protest.
    It is the soldier who serves beneath the flag, who salutes the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the demonstrator the right to burn the flag."
    -- Stephen Ambrose

    And I would hasten to add; It is the Citizen who supports the soldier. -UR.
