Andi (from Andi's blog) has her reports up (with pictures) from Sunday's rally for the Military & their Families and from Friday's counter-protest of Code Pink's phony vigil outside Walter Reed.

Maybe somebody could ping the DC Chapter for me about Andi's reports?

I'll pick up my pictures from Friday and Saturday later today. Sunday I didn't have a camera. If they turn out I'll update my webshots page and post the link. My pictures were taken with a digital disposable camera and I've never used one before.

OPEN LETTER TO CINDY SHEEHAN (Must Read)

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1491832/posts

Proof that hanoi kerry is behind baghdad sindee
by FReeper Mom of Two Soldiers

"OPEN LETTER TO CINDY SHEEHAN:
Residing in the same town as you once resided
and knowing your family,
I must ask you, "Whatever are you thinking? ..."

"...Cindy, you've changed since the Kerry campaign
contacted you in early July of last summer..."

"...Finally, and most disturbing,
how can you support a group that supported John Kerry,
who on April 7th, on National Public Radio
stated that Al Sadr had a "legitimate voice"
and that the Coalition (including your son)
should not have closed down his newspaper
after he called for the deaths of U.S. troops..."




So do the "Move On FReepers" who think we should ignore
hanoi kerry also think that baghdad sindee
should continue the attacks on the President and our Troops also?????

First, thank you for posting the link to Brendan's blog.
It allowed me to catch several glimpses of my USMC flag.
Now, I have something to say, and this NOT a rant.

This is the email I just sent Brendan

Brendan, this is Bob Miller, concretebob on FreeRepublic. I am going to take one more stab at this and then I guess I'll just let it go. This past weekend my USMC Flag, which was hanging on the Protest Warrior tent at the Navy Memorial, was removed and used in the march. I stopped the individual who had removed it and informed him that it was my flag. He assured me he would return it immediately after the march. The flag was never returned. I saw at least two photos which had a USMC flag in them, one hanging on a section of barricade, the other being carried by two individuals in the street. Whether they were the same flag at different times, or two seperate flags, I do not know. I have several pictures showing my flag at seperate locations, including the W&M Freep, which you can access through my website (click SlideShow) and two seperate counter vigils at Walter Reed. Anyone at the DC Chapter of FreeRepublic will attest to the fact that I have placed a Marine Corps flag at our protests. May I impose upon you to take a few minutes and try to locate my flag? It woud mean a great deal. I purchased that flag for the express purpose of using it at Walter Reed on Friday nights. My dad was a Marine, as was my uncle, and I am a former Vietnam era Marine. I was very disappointed when the individual who used it broke his word. If we can't depend on each other, if a man's word is not his bond, then our movement doesn't stand a snowball's chance in hell. If the words on that flag, "Duty, HONOR, Country" have no meaning to the individual who did not return it, then we may as well turn the whole damn street over to Code Pink and stay home. If the Marine Corps motto SEMPER FI, "Ever Faithful" is just two strange Latin words, then we are not the men we claim to be. I will be at Walter Reed this Friday, and every Friday until given further instructions by Kristinn. I will raise Old Glory as I always do, but there will be a hole where the EGA (Eagle Globe & Anchor) once flew. Sincerely, Bob Miller concretebob FreeRepublic SEMPER FI

Ohhh, my pics didn't turn out well. They'll need to be fixed up so it will take a few days. The digital disposable camera must have been hard to use because none of the shots is set up properly. So, I'm happy the shots I'm in are bad too!

B+ for effort, D for results.

Good thing we have some great photographers around.

PING

NOTICE!!!!!

I do not want ANYONE, NO ONE, in the DC Chapter to replace my flag.
It is not your responsibility.
Please, let's see if this individual has any honor.
I ask this as a friend, and as someone who has finally found a place he can relax and enjoy the company of like-minded people.

Thank You

Bob

Sorry to hear of the missing flag.

We had many signs borrowed by other groups for pictures and even just to carry during the rally. I saw many of them being returned, just as promised.

There is so much sold, available for a donation, or given away at these events, it may be confusing to people who do not know how our group works.

I hope you will find these same people just did not realize the importance of the flag or the fact that it was personal property.

I am going to bet it can be found and returned to you.

Thanks so much for the ping bmwcyle! Your pictures are awesome. Thank you and the Whole crew for all the work you did and for giving up your time, week after week, to honor our Troops and their families.

I so wish I could have been there, but I'm thankful there were 3 of us to show up in Denver on Saturday to support our troops and their mission, and stand up to the hate-America crowd.

Here's a picture I think you might enjoy. Check out what Jenny is standing on. The Freedom hating crowd went nuts when they noticed what she was standing on.

We were slightly out numbered, but we have TRUTH on our side!

Ok. I fixed up the pics as best as I could. Maybe I should have read the directions before I used the camera. The quality I think is good enough esp. for a throwaway digital.

Hey LF - thanks for the ping!

LF and bmw - I hope you don't mind I've stolen some of your pics for my gallery, so I don't have to direct people to so many different places to see all these great pics. I've credited them to you. If you need the traffic on your site let me know and I'll take them down.

Please feel free to repost any of mine. I don't need traffic.

These galleries are not finished yet but some of my pics are up here:

Please, everyone who can show up at Walter Reed for a couple hours on Friday nights- please attend!! You can come for part of the evening if that's the time you're able to spare.

It's easy. We have flags and signs or you can bring your own.

Patients who have talked to me say they appreciate our being there and it makes them feel good. It's a great way to directly help our wounded soldiers and their families. Some of these brave heroes have been badly injured- lost limbs, their hearing, other serious wounds, etc. We owe it to them to have their back and stand up to those pinkos who are exploiting them as political props.

Please honor our brave vets back from the frontlines and give comfort to the families and friends who visit them.

If you aren't able to attend in person, then you can bump the threads, tell your friends about Friday nights at WR, and help in other ways.

None of my friends invite me anywhere on Friday nights anymore because they know where I'll be. And I like it that way. [I better note here that they do invite me places the rest of the week so you don't think I'm delusional.]

Supercool April from Texas flew to DC to attend one of our WR freeps and then flew back to Texas the next day! Awesome. Not everyone can do that. Do what you can!

God Bless Our Troops and our President!
