U.S. Congressman Kenny Marchant
Proudly Representing the 24th District of Texas
Special Bulletin: May 31, 2010
“In Preparation for Memorial Day”
Not the preacher,
Who has given us freedom of religion.
Not the reporter,
Who has given us freedom of the press.
Not the poet,
Who has given us freedom of speech.
Not the campus organizer,
Who has given us freedom to assemble.
Not the lawyer,
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.
Not the politician,
Who has given us the right to vote.
Who salutes the Flag,
Who serves under the Flag.
Eternal rest grant them o Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.
