What is a Veteran? A “VETERAN” -whether active duty, discharged, retired, reserve or guard- is someone who, at one point in his/her life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America,” for an amount of “up to, and including his/her life.”

It is a VETERAN, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.

It is a VETERAN, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.

It is a VETERAN, not a poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

It is a VETERAN, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is a VETERAN, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is a VETERAN, not the politician, who has given us the right to vote.
