Pittsburgh Salutes our Veterans

                           

                                  It is the VETERAN, not the preacher

                                  Who has given us religious freedom 

                                  

                                  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 trail.

 

                                  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.

 

 

                       

 

                                  Eternal rest grant unto them O LORD

                                  And let Perpetual light shine upon THEM.  

 

I don't know if you saw this in the news, but it really impressed me. And at the very least it should at least stop and make you think!

On the ABC evening news, it was reported that, because of the dangers of from hurricane Isabelle approaching Washington DC, the military members assigned to the duty of guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Solider were given permission to suspend the assignment.

They respectfully declined the offer,  "No Way, Sir!"

Soaked to the skin, marching in the pelting rain of a tropical storm, they said that guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Solider was not just an assignment, it the highest honor that can be afforded to a serviceperson.

The Tomb of the Unknown Solider has been patrolled continuously, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, since 1930.

Funny, our US Senate/House took 2 days off, as they could not work because of the expected storm!
