I missed seeing you last week, Coop!

I've enjoyed listening to you and BufordP chastise those pinkos in the past. (I didn't miss seeing the pinkos though)

Have fun tonight for me!!

Thanks, StarCMC! We kicked some commie butt again tonight. It is soooooo nice to have them down the street and out of the line of sight of the troops and their families. So many soldiers came out tonight to talk with us, in civvies and in uniform. One car out of five beeped or waved out the window, including drivers of DC buses and long-distance truckers going by. What a pleasure not to see the loooooonnng faces of the dour hate-festers across the street any more! Lots of love went around all four corners!

Your usual wonderful musical accompaniments -- thanks for posting those. I particularly love Dolly Parton. That was a wonderful rendition of "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" by her.

Reminds me of my favorite Dollly Parton quotation: "When somebody calls me a dumb blonde, I don't pay them no mind, 'cause I know I'm not dumb. And I know I'm not blonde."

We had a great conversation with two of our soldiers from Kentucky. Bill and Wes. You have probably already met them. Both are being medically retired. In fact, Bill goes home today. He may be home already.
Bill is a veteran of the Gulf War, Bosnia and Afghanistan.
He then volunteered to go to Iraq. Amazing.
Wes said he would go back in a minute if he could. Fine young man.
Both were in great spirits though it's pretty obvious that they're tired of being in the hospital.
Meeting folks like these is what it's all about.

Thanks, but that was a group effort. Those went over VERY well. Started with 164, two hours later only a dozen were left. Shortly after that those were gone.

I always smile when I recall her remark to Johnny Carson one night after he complimented her on her dress: "It takes alot of money to look this cheap!".

OH yeah!!!
It was Bill's last night at Walter Reed, and we sent him home with a flourish.
Free beers at our favorite establishment, and then on to Smitty's duty station.
I've found my favorite hang out.
Freepmail on the way.

Get well soon! You should also know that the tall soldier Kevin, who has visited us before in his wheelchair, was up walking around with us this week! That was so cool!

To the best of my knowledge. Although he was virtually a different man in finely tailored pinstripes before the event, as soon as the FReep began, he was very much on the case, in appropriate insulated streetwear, interviewing FReepers and making notes.

Yes, a good Freeper who has provided many fine picture for the WRAMC after action reports discussed it. And after I saw he was using it I thought I would emulate him as a means of high flattery.

I was also a tall soldier (2m), in fact, whenever it was raining while we marched, my platoon would thank me for "volunteering" to accept any lightning that came our way! God bless you, Kevin, glad to hear you're walking tall again!!!

Great emblem - it looks 3D on my screen. Was that intentional?

Is it a plasma screen? They do make it look deeper!

You'll like this then!

Good Morning airborne

Not a plasma, just a regular big box screen. It is an 18" diagonal screen though. Maybe the shading of the emblem on a larger screen does it.

I do like the parachutist, though not quite 3D as the emblem. Moving object I guess.
