Posted on 05/03/2008 6:46:53 AM PDT by RaceBannon

Folks, I want to invite all Freepers and Lurkers in good standing to attend the rally to welcome the families of the graduating cadets of the Coast Guard Academy on May 21, 2008. Vice President Dick Cheney will be the honored speaker.

We are not allowed any amplified sound this time, and we also have the best location, the high ground near the entrance, the same spot that the hippies had last year.

Thanks for the invitation, but distance and work schedules would not permit me attending. I hope all that can, will have a great time.

The Coast Guard Training Center in Cape May NJ is a nice base in a great location. I have never seen the one in New London CT and I imagine it is nice too.

It is about three hours south of us...It would be worth it to go just to see Dick Cheney cause the tops of the moonbat’s to pop off....

The VP certainly seems to at his element with service men and women I am sure he will enjoy the event and his speech will be well appreciated by all of those who are fortunate to attend.

I have always admired Dick Cheney and think that he would make a great President. He is far and away better than the current crop of losers running for the office.

A short item for Florida Military families from the GOE site, borrowing a thread for a quick FL State PING.


Short lead time - Free cruise for military families THIS WEEKEND

May 28, 2008
Eagles!
Short-notice good deal for military families! Eagle Janet Pearson has just uncovered this. If you know any military folks in Florida who might be able to launch on two days’ notice, please pass this info on to them.

I'm guessing less than 1 in 10 Americans actually know what a fid is, or what it is used to accomplish.
