Skip to comments.First Snow at Walter Reed, Week 296, December 17, 2010
Posted on 12/19/2010 5:26:16 AM PST by kburi
After last winters record snowfall, we regard Thursdays dusting as a practice snow just to get us in shape. It would insult a ruler to even measure it.
Mrs. Trooprally was under the weather which meant Trooprally was the photo taker tonight. Not a bad effort, but hed rather be on the corner holding the flag.
Margaret the Administrative Volunteer at Aleethia Foundation which is responsible for the Friday Night dinners for the Wounded Warriors sent Mr. and Mrs. Trooprally an email earlier Friday.
It reads in part:
Looks like another cold night....We've been busy getting hoodie sweatshirts, jackets and knit hats (but the guys still are stubborn with the caps) for the service members... so many show up for the buses on Friday night with just sweat tops or double shirts... many say their medicine keeps them warm... I just shake my head!
Anyway, Aleethia's dinner tonight is being hosted by the British Ambassador at his residence...so it probably be late when the buses return.
Keep warm! Thanks again for being there... you guys are true Patriots and I know the guys appreciate the support.
By the way, here is a link to a recent news story...3 of the four Marines attend the Friday night dinners and I have personally got to know them and they are awesome!
Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to you both and your families!
Next Friday is Christmas Eve, and The DC Chapter wants to wish all Wounded Warriors, their families, and all of the organizations and individuals supporting the troops, a very Merry Christmas.
Tonights dinner did run late and we dont have a picture of the bus returning.

There was no moonbat news tonight.
The DC Chapter invites you to join us every Friday night between the hours of 6:30pm to approximately 9:30pm.

But thank you all for continuing to fight the good fight.
Well the first snow was a warm (up) snow.
Most rational thinkers think we are staring an ice age and it sure feels like it.
Merry Christmas pnh 102
BTW--I seldom see the Code Pink freaks mentioned in your reports lately--are they still showing up?
So, saturday night live starts with Keenan dressed like a snowman. He is reporting from washington dc about the bad press the administration got over 2010.
The gist of the skit is new headlines flashing by Obama and company wishing how the headline should read.
Not the point. The final part of the skit is the snowman wishing for a fix to global warming so he doesn’t melt.
It was an Al Gore moment.
Taxman Bravo Zulu!
You folks are AWESOME! Thank you so much for doing what you do for our FRee Republic!
Code Pink only shows sporadically when they hope to get PR mileage.
A leftie union shows weekly with several (4 to 8) puppets.
They are quiet generally, but still have hateful signs and occasionally make vile comments to the troops.
The DC Chapter’s presence keeps them far away from the front gate.
Oh for goodness sakes! Once again, thanks for guarding those gates!
Ya know, if the DC Chapter would quit denying Global Warming, y’all wouldn’t have to put up with snow. /s
BUMP for your steadfastness.
You should have added “[Mrs] T’s camera”. Even without her being there, it still floated around.
Thanks for the AAR.
My hat’s off to you freepers!
Maybe it is because it is over 70 degrees and sunny...no need for a hat?
Honestly, thank you for being there to support our troops and representing the entire Free Republic Family.
It looks coooooold out there! Many thanks for all you do for our troops, and Merry Christmas to all of you!
