Posted on 01/12/2010 6:38:39 PM PST by Tom the Redhunter
Two more nights braved by FReepers out guarding the entrance to Walter Reed Army Medical Center, keeping the moonbats at bay!
Not that the Code Pink moonbats are much of a problem anymore. They only managed three people on the second night. More, the Code Pink leaders long since abandoned their own people and haven't been seen for two years or more. It's now a union operation.
We had a relatively big snow storm at the end of December but fortunately most of that's gone. Now it's just... chilly. Mid to low 20's isn't so bad but the wind was howling on both nights. Deploying the MOAB was out of the question, and it was all we could do to put up the mini-MOAB and keep our signs from blowing out of our hands.
Here is your author along with Concrete Bob at right .
Bob is proud USMC (ret) so brought his flag. It sure looks good in the breeze!
We had maybe a half dozen people who braved the cold to hold down the four corners. The moonbats had 3, then they left, and 3 more showed up only at the very end.
Good union shop that they are, the moonbats start promptly at 7:00 and leave right at 9:00. You can your watch by them.
Nah, we didn't bother taking any pictures of them. Why waste the pixtels?
Mr Trooprally adds this commentary:
The picture of me with the shovel is me putting salt on Lurker Bill's southeast corner. I also put salt on the path from the parking lot to the sidewalk. There was a lot of snow and ice else where but it didn't affect our FReep. Also, we couldn't put up the red banner on the southwest corner because of the frozen snow bank there. Even Lurker Bill did not put up the banner on his corner. He did have the white banner up and the heater. (Kburi didn't want to mention the 'propane' part since we are outside a military base).
What It's All About
Although the moonbats leave at 9pm sharp, we stay until the troops arrive back from their night out. Fortunately these two nights it was at about 9:30! I can remember many time when they didn't get back until after 10. It's not so bad in the summer, but sometimes on those winter nights you're awfully glad when they get there on time or earlier.
Come join us every Friday night between the hours of 6:30pm to approx 9:30pm.

Ping DC Chapter!
You all are awesome!
Glad I could stand it for even an hour!
concretebob, looking well and being there to start the New Year was wonderful!
I checked the other pictures and printed out Linda's too. Thank You.
I'll see you all when it warms up, maybe over Easter weeks.
Good to see you bob. Hope you are well. I stand in amazement at the fortitude of all the Freepers who stand for our troops. Thank you all, and thank you for the video.
You’re looking great concretebob! Glad to know you’re well enough to FReep...that’s always a good sign.
Thanks to all of you who brave the cold. I know our troops appreciate it.
Very cool, Bob, and Thank you! The flags look beautiful in the breeze.
TAXMAN BRAVO ZULU!
Short ‘n sweet and warmer than the last several Friday nights. 3DJoy sure picked a real cold night to join us.
It sure was great seeing ConcreteBob up and around. And a big surprise.
Thanks for writing the AAR.
Your video sure brought back some cccold memories. Thanks, I think. Gotta go and build a fire now.
And it was real good to see you, cigars and all.
I miss you guys!!! You all are doing a great job!!!
I was talking to a friend of my daughter who was there recently. He said the guys in the Mologne House talk about you all with fondness ( not exactly his word, but you get the drift) Hang in there when the wind gets ugly! You all rock!
You are also missed here in DC. It’s great to know that the troops appreciate our Fridays. Sure helps during the cold nights. Thanks for the “inside” info.
