Military Retirement Poem Gift (#340-C) << Back to Product
Retiring after 23 Years of Service
From the United States Air Force
1992 - 2015
It is the airman, not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the airman, not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the airman, not the campus organizer,
Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the airman, not the lawyer,
who has given us a right to a fair trial.
It is the airman, like Harry,
Who salutes the flag,
Who serves under the flag,
And who gave self-sacrificing
Loyalty to his country.
