Memorial Day Remembrance






We can be very proud of our young men and women in the service no matter where they serve.

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,


ETERNAL REST
GRANT THEM O LORD,
AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT
SHINE UPON
THEM.
