Recruiter Appreciation Day, Saturday, May 17,2008
Gathering of Eagles ^ | April 27,2008 | Mary-Sheba Graves

Posted on 04/27/2008 5:13:19 PM PDT by trooprally

Gathering of Eagles has just announced Recruiter Appreciation Day, Saturday, May 17 or there abouts.

Being a Saturday, some recruiter stations have shortened hours or are closed. Friday or Monday might be a better day.

As in other Support the Troop Events, one organization steps forward to be the main coordinating organization. GoE has once again stepped up to the plate this year. Check out the GOE site for pertinent info. Hopefully no one doubles up on a Recruiter Station while one across town is neglected.

We need to get rolling on this also. Both the Silver Spring, MD and the L & 13th St., Wash., D.C. centers are dear to our hearts. Both have been vandalized one way or another in the last two years.

The D.C. chapter is going to visit two recruiter centers during lunch time on Friday, May 16.

1. Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring,MD Center

2. L St. between 13th & 14th Sts., NW, Wash., D.C. Center

For those on the list that are D.C. locals, please FReepmail me if you can help out. Let me know which center you can go to.

For those who are scattered around these great United States, please organize a local visit with Mary-Sheba Graves at Gathering of Eagles Recruiter Appreciation Day. Her email address is in the GoE article . Even if it is just your self with a couple of pizzas. Just call to let the recruiters know you are coming.

Thanks for the bump.

Not sure when you are in harms way but a prayer goes out to keep you safe. You can always bank it for later if not needed right away.

Thanks for linking. The anarchists in CA better watch out, the patriots are pushing back. Hopefully the anarchists are pushed just to the seaward side of the fault line that slides into the Pacific. HeeHee

Last year the recruiters we visited were so skepitcal of it...it took weeks of calls and emails to get approval (thanks code pink!) This year, one call was all it took and they are so excited as are we.

We brought pizza last year and supplimented it with soda and baked goods my kids made (will do that again this year) along with thank you cards and such.

We took it all over with red, white and blue stuff (cups, balloons, plates, etc) and they really enjoyed it.

We only stayed for about 20 minutes, but we all got so much out of it. What a joy to do it again this year!

Early is no problem, or Monday, the 19th.

Just need to keep it close to the 17th.

The D.C. Chapter is doing our two recruiter centers on Friday when most recruiters are there.

Last year I took Little Ceasar’s pizza and drinks over to a Army recruiter in the Burbank mall. They didn’t believe that I would really show when I called to express my plans. They were surprised, and elated.

Little Ceasar’s supports the troops.

FRiends, I challenge you to take half an hour or an hour to show our Military you appreciate them.

All the FR bumps and pings in the world mean nothing to the outside world.

What does freedom mean to you?
