Why We Continue the Fight The challenge for this generation of veterans is to harness our shared lessons to ensure that Americas best days remain ahead.

Colonel Oliver North’s tribute to our Military
I fought for You
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 the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the Soldier, not the lawyer, Who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the Soldier, who salutes the flag, Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag, Who allows the protester to burn the flag.
