Hard to find the perfect addition to a scrapbook page? Here is another list, this one to be used for bravery; patriotic; military; July 4th and other pages. Some of these can be used for police, fire and other occupations that require acts of bravery.
1. It Has Always Been the Soldier (change words to make it fit the branch of service):
It is the Soldier, not the rpeorter who has given us the freedom of the press;
It is the Solder, not the poet who has given us the freedom of speech;
It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us freedom to demonstrate
It is the Soldier– Who salutes the flag; Who serves beneath the flag; and whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protestor to burn the flag.
