Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins is doing something for our wounded warriors. Homes For Our Troops is sponsored by Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins. Their corporate sponsors are listed HERE.
Corporations publicly supporting our troops, putting money where their mouth is. Too many people and corporations say they support our troops but not many of them actually do, or marginally donate.
We were handed some pamphlets on the Homes for our Troops from a passing motorist. He turned the corner, stopped at the curb and handed us several pamphlets.
Week 185 roll call of our 9 1/2 Patriots include Legionnaires Carl (Army WWII) and Jack, (Army - WWII), Lurker Bill and his two generations , daughter and grandson, and FReepers Cindy_True_Supporter, Fraxinus, Sensei Ern [Mrs] Trooprally, aka [Mrs] T, and myself, [Mr] T.
Week 186 roll call of our 10 Patriots include Legionnaires Glenn (Army WWII) and Ed, (Army - WWII), Lurker Bill and FReepers 3DJoy, Cindy_True_Supporter, Eager, Fraxinus, GunsAreOK, [Mrs] Trooprally, aka [Mrs] T, and myself, [Mr] T.

Late AARs, but hope to get this last Saturday’s AAR up before Saturday.
Great Report Mr T
My stepson was the recipient of a Homes for Our Troops Home. They are a wonderful organization!
Are any quackers still showing up?
I love the photos of the waving hands, and of course, of the littlest ‘freeper.’
How could I have missed the week with the littlest “lurker”?
Time flies when they are growing...
Thanks for the report and the hospitality.
Great job “Legs”, hugs all around. That Cindy is one gutsy woman.
[Mrs] T - couldn’t have been great without your pics. Thank you.
Please tell your stepson - Thank You for his service.
We have a Dunkin Donuts here in Olney that we go to often. We have even received gift cards and coffee & doughnuts from our passing supporters.
Yep - “Quackers” still there. This weeks AAR is “dedicated” to the maggots.
Soon our littlest FReeper will be able to hold his sign by himself. Seems just yesterday that he was out with us in a bassinet.
Our pleasure. Glad to have made your day.
Thanks for the kudos.
Yipper - Cindy is a fighter. She says that she gets a little emotional sometimes, but that’s okay. Better that than a couch-potato complainer.
Sorry for the late AAR, last week’s should be out more promptly.
Thanks so much for all you guys do in this project! This must be the longest running “freep” in the history of Free Republic! Bravo!
Actually Walter Reed has run about 10 months longer. And Walter Reed hasn’t missed a Friday. Olney has missed one or two when we all went to DC for a big FReep. Any one remember Gathering of Eagles I on March 17,2007?
But we will take your kudos an humbly say - Thanks
