FReeper Canteen ~ Fabulous Friday
March 1, 2012 | Canteen Crew

Posted on 03/01/2012 6:05:30 PM PST by beachn4fun

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale
of our military and our allied military
and the family members of the above.
Honoring those who have served before.

Remember the Good Old Days?
Sock Hops?
Drive-in Movies?
Buddy Holly?
Or other things that made it Fabulous?
You know, before cellphones?
Come on in and share your memories.
Or take a trip back in time.

Let's start with the 1950.

First Modern Credit Card Introduced
In 1949, Frank X. McNamara thought of a way for customers
to have just one credit card that they could use at multiple stores.
McNamara discussed the idea with two colleagues
and the three pooled some money and started a new company in 1950
which they called the Diners Club.

First "Peanuts" Cartoon Strip
The very first Peanuts comic strip, written by Charles M. Schulz,
appeared in seven newspapers on October 2, 1950.

Number One Hit
8 July 1950 ~ Mona Lisa ~ (Nat "King" Cole)

here

Remember, the Canteen is a family friendly place.
We welcome the military, our allies, and their families.
Continued prayers for the success and completion of your mission.
Prayers for your safe return home.

REST IN PEACE, FALLEN BROTHER!





Lt Col John D. Loftis, USAF, 866th Air Expeditionary Squadron, KIA Afghanistan 25Feb2012



I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7 (KJV)


God Of Our Fathers



Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in peace!
We who remain hold you in high honor.
Rest, fallen brother, in this sacred precinct;
We who remain keep this place sacred.
Rest, fallen brother, among these, your comrades;
We who remain keep the watch.
Rest, fallen brother, among these who answered the Nation’s call;
We who remain press the fight forward in your name.
Rest, fallen brother, lay down thy burden;
We who remain have taken up the torch.
Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in eternal peace!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Col. Loftis is one of the officers shot in the back of the head at close range by one of the Afghan security forces. What a disgraceful act!

It says volumes about the differences between Christianity and Islam.

Rest in peace, gallant brother! The Nation will long remember your sacrifice!

Amen. I know the troops are totally frustrated because their
so-called “COC” has hamstrung them so they are unable to fight the enemy.

Aloha Night Owl! ((HUGS))

A beautiful sunny day today, unlike yesterday which rained all day and all night.

Seems that March isn't being kind to you, just think that spring is just around the corner.

Must retire – the 0500 Reveille approaches relentlessly – the bugler already mounts the parapet. Will chat with you all on the morrow.

Good night, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America!

Godspeed our Troops around the Globe – especially those in harm’s way – by virtue of their service and sacrifice we continue to live in Freedom!
