Tribute to Kenosha's Fallen Heroes

In the early days of our nation, our forefathers created the Bill of Rights.

It was designed to provide freedom and justice to all Americans. However, it was the soldiers who went into the battlefields and fought, often giving their lives, that made the Bill of Rights a reality and gave Americans the freedoms they enjoy.

America's Armed Forces on land, the High Seas, and in the air enforced the cause of freedom. Throughout the history of this country, it has been the American Armed Forces that protected those rights and made our country what it is today.

Because of the soldier, we have earned the right to be what we are...free Americans.
—————————
It is the Soldier...
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 campus organizer
who has given us freedom to demonstrate

It is the Soldier not the lawyer
who has given us the right to a fair trail

It is the Soldier who salutes the flag
who serves under the flag
whose coffin is draped by the flag
Who allows the protester to burn the flag.
