God Bless all who have helped make Walter Reed a success by your presence, well wishes and donations.

The video shows smiling and appreciative soldiers who came out to thank us.

I didn’t put it together, just the messenger. DCPW1776 was the author and I am sure it took hours to go thru the pictures.

And great it is.

Absolutely first class summary of all of our worthwhile commitment to supporting the wounded warriors.

There have been an awful lot of great people standing on Friday nights at Walter Reed’s front gate.

You seem to have an “in” with FReeper CHOPPED LIVER, so please tell “IT” that I only mentioned those who have basically moved away or were early regulars who haven’t been seen for a longggggg while.

I apologize to Chopped Liver and those not mentioned.

Mystery Solved!!

Our own LURKER BILL put the video together for the 3 Year Anniversary. He will be showing it again at the 6 Year Anniversary. One day Lurker Bill will get a FR screen name. But he can’t use “Lurker Bill” because there is already a LB.

In case anyone didn’t see Pleas Deal in any pics, it was because most of the pics were taken by here.

Now that was one of the most worthwhile 1/2 hours I have ever spent!

Thanks...I anxiously await the next 3 years version!

( Some of those signs were so good...what happened to them?)

Yep, so signs sure have gotten worn in the past 3 years. But the ones that are still usable sure bring back memories. Your sign from last summer is waiting for you. We are keeping it warm.

You are welcome from the DC Chapter.

But if not for FReeRepublic I doubt if we would be there. Our troops might be getting the same treatment as our Vietnam Vets did if 15 years ago FR was not born. So kudos to you for your foresite and HAPPY 15th BIRTHDAY!

A lot better weather today than GoEI in March,2007. It will actually be in the 70s.

I watched this all the way through and feared the visit of “W” or the bathing beauty. ( glad they were missed) Luckily even the crazy hats did not appear...

I love that baseball cap with the stars and stripes though, and was glad to see it several times (with the mismatched red and blue shoes).

Do I have to fear my crazy antics were after the third reunion date?

Have to bookmark this to watch later at a cooperative computer. My heartfelt thanks to the stalwart defenders of the DC “four corners”. Sorry I couldn’t get there this weekend but hope to for the anniversary. God bless our troops!

The feed looked like it was from across the street. You could see ralliers on the other side of it. You all have become a landmark. I'm sure our troops feel supported and thankful for your faithfulness in showing up for them. A great morale booster I'm sure.

Keep up the good work.:)

Thanks. As usual, great videos.

I’ll get it into the AAR.

Also asked Kburi to get “Bruce Goes Mad” into the WR AAR if it is not too late.

You Betcha! And the DC/Virginia/Maryland area patriots who stand in support of our heroes, always take good care of their friends from the SunShine State! They had extra coffee on hand and even provided wonderful hand warmers to put in our gloves! They knew we Florida folks would REALLY feel the cold weather of February!

Maybe ...we get sillier as we age! LOL

I remember the big “cat in the hat” was early, but then there was Darth Cheney too. W must have been a long time ago. Say, remember when someone else, had a great Jefferson(?) costume. I know I was not there that night.

We could almost do a video of great T-Shirts too!

Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
