It Has Always Been The Soldier (11/11/13)

It's not CBS or NBC; ABC or CNN that's giving us the freedom of the press.
Not TV preachers Larry Flint, Ted Kennedy, or Jessie Jackson giving us the freedom to verbally express.
Not the campus organizers or all the demonstrations
giving us the freedom to march, freely march and disagree.
Oh can't you see?!
 
 
It has always been the soldier who has made the sacrifice.
Standing strong and proud in battle willing to
lay down his life.
 
Somewhere there's a soldier and he's looking at a picture of his little girl;
How he wishes he were home!
And somewhere there's a soldier and he's reading a love letter from his wife and she is telling him how she feels so all alone.
And somewhere there's a mom and dad who cry late in the night for a son who won't be coming home;
A son who gave their life.
Freedom isn't free! Oh can't you see?!
 
It has always been the soldier who has made the sacrifice.
Standing strong and proud in battle willing to lay down his life.
 
To the angry man who shakes his fist and burns the stars and stripes;
That same flag that drapes the coffins of those who gave thier lives.
There's no other place that you will go that you have ever been
where the blood of soldiers gives the right to burn the flag again!
 
It has always been the soldier who has made the sacrifice!
Standing strong and proud and battle willing to lay down his life.
 
It has always been the soldier on land, and air, and sea.
It has always been the soldier fighting for our liberty!
 
It has always
It has always been the soldier!
