FRONT GATE NOTES
Tonight was quiet and warm. Honks and waves throughout the evening. Trooprally did his usual good job alerting a few drivers to turn on their lights.
The busses were late because the dinner was quite a distance away in Arlington, Virginia.
Other Notes Worth Noting
Our evening highlight was a truck leaving Walter Reed, with a soldier leaning out the window whooping and hollering and thanking us for being there. (And this is one reason why we are at the Front Gates).
ToleranceSucksRocks led the way into an early summer with Bermuda shorts. The rest of us will keep a jacket handy just in case.

Three very subdued moonbats down the block. It was only two, with the third coming right before 9pm. We think this is a paid no-show union job. Whatever, they disappeared at nine pm. .
The DC Chapter invites you to join us every Friday night between the hours of 6:30pm to approx 9:30pm.
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

I literally wanted to cry as I looked at these pictures. Such good people to take their time and give back to America and our troops. Real Americans are compassionate and generous, just like these folks. Thank you for being there.
Thank you for putting the AAR so fast. Did a great job.
Thanks to all those who are there in person for all of us who are there in spirit.
Woo-Hoo it looks like good weather is coming to WR!
Nice to see you all there and thanks for doing it for all of us.
Walter Reed FReepers.
I’m glad to see you got the good weather I ordered for you.
Send as much Texas weather as you can. It’s welcome.
Add a little Arizona weather if you can.....
Yes, good people, and so badly outnumbered.
Is it my imagination or are decent old fashioned good people hard to find nowadays? I’m a boomer and my parents friends were all nice people but I’m having a hard time finding people like that in my neck of the woods. Maybe it’s just my imagination.
I think most of them are here in WV.
