Needed for the FReeRepublic Inaugural Ball...military photos
Mama_Bear

Posted on 01/03/2005 5:50:22 PM PST by Mama_Bear

Needed for the FreeRepublic Inaugural Ball.......freeper's military photos for some montage posters that I will be making thanking the military for their service. These will be displayed on easels at the FreeRepublic Inaugural Ball.

Can you help? If you are serving or have served in Iraq or Afghanistan, or have a family member on active duty and have any high resolution photos (the higher the better) that you would like included in the montage, freepmail Mama_Bear and I will send you my e-mail address. We want everyone to know that our Inaugural Ball is not only a victory celebration for the reelection of President Bush and Vice President Cheney, but also is being held in honor of our military who are doing such a fine job fighting terrorism, liberating Iraq and protecting our freedom.

This is going to be a great Ball and a perfect opportunity to say "thank you" to our superb military forces!

We are coming down to the wire, so I will need to have the photos e-mailed to me before January 8th. Thanks so much for your help.

Pinging some Freepers who I know are active duty or have military active duty family members. Hoping some of you can send me some photos for my posters.

Please ping any military you know who might want to contribute to my project. Thanks!

Thanks for the photos you sent of your son. He will definitely be in one (or more) of the montages.

Please tell him "thank you" for his service on behalf of FreeRepublic.

Are you looking for a particular theme?

I have a nbr of images from Iraq last year. Most I have never posted on line anywhere.

I am looking for any kind of military photos, but particularly from Iraq or Afghanistan....from the field, action photos, or posed snapshots of our military. Just a little of everything.

I would love to use some of your photos from Iraq. You will have mail shortly.

Any military photos will be greatly appreciated.....especially high resolution photos that I have permission to use. I am looking for a good mixture of military photos; candids, action pics, posed photos, whatever. A montage is more interesting with a variety of photos.....as long as they are military and large enough for me to use.

As many of you know, the posters have been completed and are in the process of being printed and shipped back to DC for mounting.

I want to once again thank everyone who contacted me and offered to help with this project. I wish I had more time to make another montage with the photos and offers that came in late, but we've run out of time.

To all who responded to this thread; contacted me and sent photos, offered to send photos, wanted to send photos, are pictured, or who's family members are pictured on the posters, a HUGE thank you. (I have tried to remember everyone, but so many freepers graciously offered to contribute to this project, if I neglected to ping you to this post, please forgive me.) These military 'thank you' posters have much more impact and meaning because they are made up of FReepers or their family members. A 'thank you' also to my husband (freeper jkphoto) for his help with the finer points of creating high quality large digital graphics.

I have sent links to small versions of the two completed posters to many of you, but for those who haven't seen them and would like to, freepmail me and I will send you the links. (The files are large - 574k and 896k, so if you have a dial-up connection they will take a long time to load.)

God bless and protect our troops!

Hi Mama_Bear,

I only just saw this thread, but would love to see what you have put together. I only wish I could be in DC for the Inaugural this year. Alas, I am required to be at a once-a-year company function.

May I please have a link to the photos? Thanks for all your efforts.

I can not thank you enough for the beautiful job you did on the Military posters. I look forward to seeing them first hand at the Ball. Thank God President Bush was reelected..I doubt if the same honour would have been bestowed on our men and women in the military if the other side had been elected. God Bless you

I am sure you are right about that!

Being able to make these posters for the Inaugural Ball was an honor (not to mention a labor of love).

See you at the Ball. :-)

Well, since you are going to the Ball, you might want to wait until you see them full size. But if you don't want to shut up and be surprised, I will freepmail you the links to the small versions, but they don't do the finished product justice.

Because so many freepers sent me photos, I was only able to use a few of the photos from the links you sent, but they look great on the finished posters. :-)
