FRONT GATE NOTES (from Ms Trooprally’s notes)

This night’s Support the Troops and their families started a little slow but picked up quickly with a helicopter landing close to the front gate. Followed in short order by the arrival of BufordP and TrueBlackMan.

BufordP has been a constant presence but had to take some time off and we welcome him back! TrueBlackMan is a legendary figure who confronts the left in the DC area at many counter protests and we are always pleased when he stands with us.

We had two visitors, FReeper Agreatper, from Pennsylvania, and Tammy Cat, from California. Tammy Cat lives close to Walter Reed and we hope to see her join us on Friday nights.

TrueBlackMan came with a video camera and is interviewing all of the participants at the front gates or Walter Reed and the moonbats down the street. Tonight he interviewed several moonbats, and then interviewed several FReepers. He also interviewed 3 Wounded Warriors.

The soldiers he interviewed were adamant that the DC Chapter’s presence at the front gates on Friday nights has had a positive effect in contributing to the healing of the soldiers by knowing that Americans are visibly supporting them and their families. He will be back to continue his interviews with other Walter Reed participants.

The big bus came early and it is always a fine end to the evening to wave and salute the Wounded Warriors and their families as they return to Walter Reed from their dinner.

You guys are so faithful. Those of us who live across the country and can't be with you are so grateful for your service to our troops. As long as you are there, I can almost feel that I am with you.

Thank you.

Great report—and with the photos, it’s almost like being there.....well, not really, but it brings back some fond memories.

Thanks to all of you for representing all of us.

Yep, real good crowd of patriots tonight. We didn’t have to take shifts to eat the pizza. There was always someone on the corners. And the early bus is always welcome.

Bump to all!

It looks like you had nice weather.

I am thinking of you each week and missing being there each time!

Thank you for the timely AAR kburi. You do an exemplary job of making us “outlanders” feel like we are there with you. Wish we were. God bless you all and God bless our troops.

Wow, that was fun. Great feeling on the way home when you do something good.

I continue to be amazed how certain Freepers continue this effort week after week. I can't thank them enough.

You are so right. When I think of how long they have kept this up through all kinds of weather, it seems like an impossible feat. They are true warriors in every sense of the word. That is why our wounded warriors appreciate them so much, and why it helps them to heal faster. Every week I wish I could be there just one time so I could give them all a big hug. Thank you for going Per.
