the Soldier, not

us Freedom of the Press;
It’s the Soldier, not

It’s the Soldier who salutes the Flag,

General of the Army
Cynthia's late husband, was American Legion Commander in Texas in
1992-93. Having served in the 101st Airborne in Vietnam, he gave Cynthia
a brass tablet with General MacArthur's words shown above. Cynthia was a cub reporter at the El Paso
Times in Texas when she and Ron met in the 70s. She was assigned to report about
MacArthur's one time top military aide in Manila, Dwight Eisenhower, when
Ron gave her the tablet as a gift. Ron said it might help her with her writing. Cynthia still displays that brass tablet in her office.
