It’s been a long summer, but we are still in Olney.
God bless and keep all of you in your wonderful work.
Great AAR !!!! Better late than never and what a grand job.
We have a great bunch of patriots in Olney. My busy situation didn’t allow me to do them justice by writing a weekly AAR.
Beautiful pictures...I found myself watching the construction finally get done and the flowers appear!
Thank you all for the troop support that you provide week after week.
This is from Bev Perlson. She is with the Band of Mothers. They watch over our soldiers like mother hens. She is a wonderful lady. They had a powerful weekend in Kansas.
One of the videos from Leavenworth
The Band of Mothers will have photos and After Action Report soon! Col Allen West spoke at the rally and hit it out of the park! He is the Leader our country is calling for and he stands by our troops
Just got back from the Leavenworth 10 rally in Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas. It was terrific and I will try and get a write-up done before I leave for DC on Wednesday.
I just want to call attention to everyone here in this state that we have a Bronze Star and Purple Heart Recipient from the state of Illinois sitting in Leavenworth. His name is Sgt. Michael Patrick Leahy. Please go to http://www.supportsgtleahy.com/
and sign the petition for this Soldier, there are only 1006 signatures on this petition!!!!!!!!!
I only have one thing to say about this case: The terrorists that Sgt Leahy, Mayo and Hatley were convicted of killing were laughing about the American Soldiers they had killed.
Please send this email all over and ask those you know to sign the Clemency petition. PLEASE SEND A DONATION to help Sgt Leahy’s familiy. I had the honor of meeting his lovely wife this weekend and she is truly a warrior who has every intention of seeing her Hero come home. Jamie Leahy makes the trip to Leavenworth every two weeks, from Bolingbrook, Illinois. I can tell you folks, it’s almost an 8 hour drive.
Also, I am heading to DC this week and I plan to converge on John McCain’s office on Thursday. He sits on the Armed Services Committee and it is time he helped the Leavenworth 10. These Soldiers should be allowed to sign the same Pledge the terrorists are now given: the terrorists sign a Pledge that they won’t return to the battlefield and they are sent home! What is good enough for the terrorists should be good enough for American Soldiers!!!!!!!!!!!!!
IT WOULD BE A BIG HELP IF EVERYONE WOULD PICK UP THE PHONE TOMORROW AND CALL SENATOR MCCAIN’S OFFICE AND DEMAND THAT THE LEAVENWORTH 10 BE GIVEN THE SAME PLEDGE TO SIGN THAT THE TERRORISTS ARE BEING GIVEN AND RETURN THEM TO THEIR FAMILIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Senator McCain......(202) 224-2235

Thanks for the ping. Hope to see you Friday
You are welcome and thank you for helping out. You were at Olney the week before this grand AAR.
See you Friday and hopefully we can meet up on Sunday.
Yep, Bev is a great lady. [Mrs] T and I, and several FReepers have stood with her in DC for her Pelosi protests.
Bev is also a FReeper. I’ve posted this response to her though she is too busy to frequently get onto FR.
Not this Friday, but I’m thinking of coming to Old Knee on Saturday. What time does that start nowadays?
Never mind. 10:15 am. Got it.
Actually for the summer it is starting at 9:30AM. The moonbats finally realized that their corner is really hot at 10:30.
LOL! Guess I’ll have to get up at 7 am or so.
With everything that’s been going on, I’m surprised that you ever get an AAR done. Great pictures, and great patriots. Thank you one and all.
7AM on a Saturday - It will do you good. :-))
Thanks and you are welcome from the Olney patriots.
I will support the troops but not the thug in the White House
Wow, blast from past AARs. Where did you come across this thread?
And I agree with you, support our troops but not Obambi
