“It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the soldier, not the protestor, who has given us the freedom to protest.

It is the soldier who salutes the flag, serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives that protestor the freedom to burn the flag.
