We had a Fallen Soldier Ceremony yesterday. I don't know if people realize it, but at Army Reserve Command, there is a ceremony for every single reservist who's killed in action. I always try to go to these, to honor the memory of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. I think these soldiers and their families deserve no less.
The SGM from G3 quoted the following: "It has been said truthfully that it is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the agitator, who has given us the freedom to protest. It is the soldier who salutes the flag, serves beneath the flag, whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives that protester the freedom he abuses to burn that flag."
