MOAB Slogan Contest
Current MOAB has been in use for some time and is starting to show a lot of wear and tear. Time for a new one.
Here's our current MOAB as seen in Freep 193.
The Original MOAB read:
GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS
We could put the current slogan on the new one but we'd rather leave it to you to come up with a new phrase. The troops, their families, and the workers at Walter Reed have seen the existing one for some time. Let's change things up.
Keep just keep in mind that it must fit on the banner and that it should be pro-troop, that is, something that will inspire and encourage the troops, their families, and the workers at Walter Reed.
We would like to unveil the new saying on our 4th Anniversary, which would be Week 208 or April 3. We will announce the winner on that AAR thread. The cutoff for suggestions will be early March (sorry, we don't have an exact date, so just keep 'em coming until we stop posting this in the AARs).
The contest judges will be your Walter Reed AAR writers: BufordP, Kburi, Jimmy Valentines Brother, Tom the Redhunter
The grand prize will be ... bragging rights!
If you can't get to D.C. to join us but would like to do something for the wounded, you can find a wealth of ideas by FReepmailing Tom the Redhunter, Cindy-True-Supporter, VAFlagwaver, or PleaDeal.
Come join us every Friday night between the hours of 6:30pm to approx 9:30pm.
Too late to wish you a Merry Christmas but Happy New Year!
DC Chapter ping
Thanks for all you guys do! I’m looking forward to my next trip to DC and perhaps an opportunity to join you all!
Happy New Year!
Thanks! Looking forward to it!
Thanks for the report. I finally made it down last Friday.
THANKS for being there to keep the bad guys away from the main gate and for letting those Wounded Warriors know America remembers them.
Yeah, kristinn called me. Sorry I missed ya. Happy New Year!
Happy New Year to you all. God Bless The Troops.
It's never the operator is it?
For the new MOAB I like the words on the sign that Santa is holding in the last photo:
GOD BLESS OUR MILITARY
AND THEIR FAMILIES
Two lines of letters will leave more white on the banner, making the words easier to read as people pass by.
Merry Christmas BP!
Good report and we will see you next year (just had to slip that in).
VICTORY IN IRAQ - 2008
THANK YOU AMERICAN TROOPS!
(or THANK YOU AMERICAN HEROS!)
Happy New Year back at you if your on FR this late on NY’s Eve. Saw your AAR earlier but didn’t have time to post.
Anyway, Thanks for the AAR, another good one to read this week.
FYI - Santa and I were never together because he said the cigar smoke bothered him. But he still gives cigars out on Christmas day.
