It is the “Soldier”
In Memorial Honor to SFC Salvador “Sal” Marino
US Army and Louisiana National Guard
It’s the Soldier,
not the pastor/preacher, who has given us freedom of religion and worship.
It’s the Soldier,
not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
It’s the Soldier,
not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
It’s the Soldier,
not the demonstration organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble and demonstrate.
It’s the Soldier,
not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It’s the Soldier,
not the politician, who has given us the right to vote, ensures our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

It’s the Soldier, Who salutes the Flag, who serves beneath the Flag and whose coffin is draped by the Flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag.

The American Soldier does not serve and fight because he hates who is in front of him; he serves and fights because he loves who is behind him.

"Sambo" as most of us called him, was an Uncle everyone would have been proud to have as an Uncle. He was very special to all his many neices and nephews. I can still picture the day I saw him standing in mawmaws door so young and handsome right out of the service. I have so many great memories of times I spent with him, Vickie and their baby girls, spending summers with them and staying up all night talking. He was one of my favorite people in my life and I will always have him in my heart. I LOVE SAMBO AND WILL MISS U FOREVER!! LOVE PAM!!
