The price of Freedom

'This Fourth of July, two nations will take a holiday: an intelligentsia that despises, mocks or pities the "losers" in uniform - and the other America, which didn't go to Harvard, but whose sons and daughters ensure that We, the People, continue to live in freedom.

I don't think Lt. Burks would want you to mourn him at your holiday barbecue. I'd bet he'd rather have you enjoy everything his sacrifice preserved.'

- Ralph Peters, 'Price of Freedom'.
