Thank you DU veterans.

A friend of mine sent this to my mail mailbox and asked me to send it out to any veteran that I know. I figured that DU was the best way that I could reach alot of people. I just wanted to find some way to thank each of you who served this country. I hope you like this:

It is the Veteran, author unknown.

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.

Let's bring 'em home now

3. Damn straight
My Uncle Mario took me over to a VA hospital this weekend so that I could volunteer. It's a damn shame that we have people crying "support your troops," but don't do a damn thing to show it. I really wish the war mongering freeper chicken hawks would back up their hallow words on this.

2. Thank you DanCa
It is the veteran who cries along with the parents when they lose a son or daughter, especially in an illegal war, per Kofi Annan

4. Sounds like the Constitution was a veteran, too.
Support the Veterans and the Constitution!
