The soldier

It is the Soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of press.
It is the Soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer who gives us 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 protester to burn the flag?

(I don't know who stated this, but props to whoever did)

Here's to the soldiers that march to the war
The ugly tin hats, and the long woolen drawers

The colonel says "right, Lads! Over the top!"
Then he stands back to watch as the poor buggers drop!

Support our Armed Forces...not the BUREAUCRATS that put them in harm's way.

Isn't that their job, to be put in harms way? What are they going to yell across the ocean, "You stop that, or else you'll have to answer to the UN!"

The military's purpose is to kill people and break things. And I thank God for them all doing so. Bad men need to stopped, and it takes a strong military willing and able to do so.

Some great quotes by and about Marines:

For over 221 years our Corps has done two things for this great Nation. We make Marines, and we win battles. [Gen. Charles C. Krulak, USMC (CMC); 5 May 1997]

Don't you forget that you're First Marines! Not all the communists in Hell can overrun you! [Col. Lewis B. "Chesty" Puller, USMC; rallying his First Marine Regiment near Chosin Reservoir, Korea, December 1950]

The safest place in Korea was right behind a platoon of Marines. Lord, how they could fight! [MGen. Frank E. Lowe, USA; Korea, 26 January 1952]

Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem. [Ronald Reagan, U.S. President; 1985]
