DC Chapter FReep , Walter Reed, Friday, September 17, 2010, Week 283
September 19, 2010 | Kburi

Mrs Trooprally sent the following report from last night’s Support the Troops and Families rally at Walter Reed.

A wounded warrior came out and talked with us. He thanked us for being there. Later a uniformed soldier stood and talked with Trooprally for a while. He was WRAMC staff and expressed appreciation for the DC Chapter of Free Republic’s presence on the corners. They discussed Free Republic and some of the memorable Walter Reed rallies.

3D-Joy spent her last Friday evening of this year with us, and will return early next year. She has been a stalwart member of the Walter Reed FReep and her innovative momentos for the Restoring Honor and the 9/12 rallies were well received.

It was a calm night with lots of honks, waves and talking. For a change, tonight was very pleasant (not hot, humid or rainy) until the wind picked up.

A Big Thank You to Our Visitors!

In the last three weeks, specifically on 8/27 and 9/10, (for the Glen Beck and Tea Party rallies), many out of town attendees spent their Friday night at the Walter Reed Front Gates with the DC Chapter of Free Republic showing support for the Wounded Warriors and their families. We want you to know how much we appreciate you visiting. And look forward to you returning.

Now, more than ever, our soldiers are looking for support from their fellow Americans. When they see people holding flags and signs of support, it is a powerful message that we care for them.

Ya'll are so great! I know the troops appreciate what you are doing.

How many "enemy combatants" showed up in their putrid pink this time?

Thanks for the AAR. It is getting dark around 7:30 now. With the headlights on it is tough to see the waves and thumbs up. But we catch them as they pass. Hopefully they see our return response. I counted 6 cars driving with their headlights off. They were never stopped at the trafic light s so we couldn’t tell them.
