Walter Reed - Week 203, March 13, 2009,
Two Fridays the 13th, in a row dont bother this group.
But just in case, there was a smattering of green to ward off any moonbat negativism. A brisk damp night, but not too cold. For the record, DC starts celebrating St Patricks Day the weekend before.
BufordP and Trooprally were manning the northwest corner when Cheryl from Missouri came out of Walter Reed to visit. Her husband has cancer and the superb treatment at Walter Reed has put it in remission. Cheryl credits Walter Reed with saving his life. She said that had they stayed with the treatment at the VA hospital in Missouri, he would have died.
Later, a trooper in civilian clothes came out to thank us for being there.
And a little after that a Marine veteran and his daughter (who has a Marine son) stopped to talk with Rongkirby and Trooprally before going to talk to the moonbats. The moonbats didnt want to talk to them as they were packing up. Oh well .
Moonbat News: Eight moonbats were down the block tonight, looking lost.
The bus with its wounded warriors and their families returned around 9:30pm.
NEWS FROM THE FRONT GATE MOAB Slogan Contest Cut Off date - March 20th !
OK, we extended the date by one week, so this is it! Send us your suggestions!
Our current MOAB has been in use for some time and is starting to show a lot of wear and tear. Its now time for a new one.
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.
Help us change the message.
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 April 3. We will announce the winner on that AAR thread.
The cutoff for suggestions will absolutely be March 20th.
The highly experienced veteran contest judges include your Walter Reed AAR writers: BufordP, Kburi, Jimmy Valentines Brother, and Tom the Redhunter.
The grand prize will be ... bragging rights!
Securing the four front gate corners were: Trooprally, Cindy_True_Supporter, Lurker Bill, Rongkirby, BufordP, Second Class Citizen, Jimmy Valentines Brother and Kburi(Photos).
We are always looking for troop supporters to stop by and visit. Parking is free right across from Walter Reeds front gate.
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.
A Big Thank You to all FReepers who transport and store our many signs and banners every week.
Come join us every Friday night between the hours of 6:30pm to approx 9:30pm.
* Thank you to BufordP for maintaining the BIG LIST of all Walter Reed FReeps * Tom the Redhunter blogs at The Redhunter

Stickers are a nice touch.

You forgot the one on the back of [Mrs] T's car though.
