Skip to comments.NEW YEAR’S EVE Support for Our Military - Pic Heavy - Olney, MD - Wk 310, Dec. 31, 2011
Posted on 01/05/2012 7:06:17 AM PST by trooprally
Seven Patriots supported our troops in Olney this morning of New Years Eve. Our special guest today was 3DJoy who brought up some warm southern temps for the DC area the past 10 days. Some spring bulbs even started to come up. While I was in the sun, I had to remove my jacket. Of course when the shade over took my spot, it got a little chilly and back on went the jacket.
We also had a newbie today. Martin from [Mrs] Ts and Cindy_True_Supporters American Legion Post. Martin had such a good time waving, talking with every one and was so impressed with the honks and waves of support for our troops, he said that he will be back.
Seven patriots this week include Legionnaires Halsey (USMC - Korea), Martin (Navy), Halsey (USMC - Korea), 3DJoy, Fraxinus, [Mrs] T and myself.
Before I get into the pictures, I want to remind everyone the this Saturday, Jan. 7 is OLNEYs 6 Year Anniversary. If you ever thought to come out to Olney, this would be a good Saturday to be there. Weather permitting, we will be erecting the Walter Reed MOAB. Temps will be around 50, we will have some donuts and coffee.
We start setting up around 10AM, with the moonbats arriving at 10:30. We stay till they leave, around 11:30, and are packed up by 11:50.
Unlike Walter Reed, we have missed only one Saturday at Olney. This was for Christmas Day, 2010. When the FReepers and Lurkers could not be in Olney because of other Saturday events in DC like the first 9/12 Rally and Becks 8/28 Rally, the Legionnaires held down the fort.

AND NOW OUR GREAT SUPPORTERS. [Mrs] T captured many more but these are the best.
If you live in northern VA and want a short cut to Olney See Post 39 Here. It's an easy 20 minute drive from the American Legion Bridge.
A special Thanks to a FReeper FRiend for enhancing the original plain type directions.

HAPPY BELATED NEW YEAR!
May the Conservative Force be with us during the primaries.
Remember - the primaries are where we need to get conservative candidates in the general election. We were fairly successful in 2010 for the first time. Hopefully we will not have to hold our noses and vote “republican” just to get rid of Obambi.
Hey, I sent a reply this morning...are they not posting...this is a test!
HAPPY NEW YEAR a bit late. Looks like a nice day there. Are those old coggers going to ever give up and go home? I mean, the dictator has ended the war in Iraq and is in the process of betraying us in Afghanistan. Good on you all for staying true to our troops.
Thanks for sharing and for being there for our troops when the rest of us can’t be there! Especially loved seeing all the great photos!
James and I will be joining you all in February when we come up for CPAC. Also want to go to that wonderful hamburger place! See you all in February, and hopefully we can bring some more warm FL weather with us!
Happy New Year to you all too! Sending out a Freeper ping here.
It’s never worked out yet that I’m in NoVa to drive over and participate the way I did at WR, but it’s on my bucketlist and when I retire you’ll see me standing strong with you wonderful folks.
Sometimes the FR site is slow or doesn’t ‘read’ the click. If you click and do not see a small FR connecting statement along the bottom of the screen, click again.
I see you got home okay. Good Deal.
The moonbats are morphing into “Occupiers”. We may start being political once our soldiers are out of Afghanistan. I doubt if all our Legionaries will come out when we get political. Some will, but not all.
Five guys is a good place. Went they last Saturday with 3D. Thrashers Fries at Ocean City, Maryland are still the best. Their franchises are not as good. Jerry’s Subs started just down the road from Olney in Wheaton. Great place back then. Franchises are not as good. Order your sub and while waiting go next door to get your beer.
Be happy to have you during CPAC. I though there was activities on Saturday AM. Hope there isn’t something important that you might miss.
Thank you for your service and continued support of our military.
Looking forward to have you stand with us. Be sure to check out the driving instructions. From what I hear, FReepers coming from VA say it is a easy drive. PS - do not take the new ICC, Md Rte 200. It takes about 10 minutes longer to get to Olney.
Thanks for the ping.
Hope to see you Saturday for our 6 Year Anniversary.
I’m up late again, so maybe, maybe not.
We are having donuts and hot chocolate.
Yeah, but Mom was sick early this morning, so I decided to stick around, in case there were any more problems.
