USO Canteen FReeper Style
Snow Bunny and Billie | October 7, 2001 | Billie and Snow Bunny

Posted on 10/07/2001 2:11:41 PM PDT by Snow Bunny


USO Canteen Freeper Style

War has come to our shores. It was committed on American soil.  We have been able to live in Freedom only because of those who have fought in the past wars giving life, limb and all the sacrifices for us to live in Freedom and go about our day without fear.

On September 11, 2001, that comfort, that feeling of living in a land that would not be attacked ended.

William T. Sherman said it succinctly, "War is hell."

The day has come for this Nation and its people to understand that there is a risk in losing its freedom, and in reality there always has been. We have ONLY stayed free because of the sacrifices of our military, our warriors.

This is about saving the future of America. Aristotle said, "We make war that we may live in peace."




We are seeing the American Flag flying at homes now more than ever in my lifetime. We are seeing the American Flag flying on vehicles and people wearing Flag pins and small Flags on their clothes. America is united in the cause for Freedom and for our country to WIN against the evil that came upon our land to kill and hurt us. To change our way of life and to destroy America which is US, you and me. To take away our precious Freedom.



This is the Freeper version of the USO Canteen. Where soldiers could come and feel a small part of being at home. It is a place where you that have family in the military can post a thought to a loved one that might be able to read it far away from home. A place where we that support our military can help support them, post to them, fun graphics showing the price in America and our troops. Poems, quotes, cartoons, or articles of how America is behind our troops.

Those in our military are our Nation's warriors. Let us join hands, fly our Flag and let the world know how important our warriors are to us....And that our MILITARY, our Warriors, are America's TRUE HEROS!


"No Marine was ever honored for what they received. Honor was the reward for what they gave." (Anonymous) CHIEF gave his all in many ways. He touched our lives and his friendship meant so much to all of us. He will live in our hearts forever, and his friendship will always be a bright and shining memory in our hearts and souls.

I want to thank Billie for making this wonderful picture for all of us. And for doing this thread with me. She was very gracious and generous with her talent to do this. I begged her to please be in it as well, as she is the artist and is a beautiful Freeper inside and out.
One day there was a discussion about how wonderful the USO has been for our Troops and their families. A Freeper, Timeout, a lovely lady suggested we have a USO type thing at FR. We talked and decided to do a Freeper version so everyone here could participate.B4Ranch also gave me some ideas .
Billie and I present this to each of you for our wonderful troops and to support them .

I have partaken of any number of USO activities in years past. Everything that I participated in was appreciated and almost always enjoyable. A cyber USO is very modern and makes sense. Thank you for doing this Snow Bunny.

Snow Bunny, I don't need to know who wrote those lines.
I can recognize your passion for America and for the ones who keep it free by reading your words.

God bless you, lady.

Billie, those graphics are stunning!
I feel like I've stepped back in time to those days when we were a proud nation undefeated in any endeavor in which we chose to engage. We can be that nation again!

Timeout and B4, thank you for your contributions in making this a thread which rekindles the fires of patriotism in us all.

I know one old FReeper who is looking down from Heaven and smiling.
Herb would say, "Good job, ladies!
God bless America!
Semper Fi."

Nice work! During my years in the Navy I've had the opportunity to visit many USO's around the world and am very grateful for the service they provide. Keep up the good work.

By the way, my son just told me today he has joined the Navy and goes to boot camp on November 2nd. I am so proud!

Congrats Snow Bunny and Billie on your warm, careing effort in the USO thread. Bob Hope would be right in there helping if his health would permit. But I know a few words from him to our fighting men would be a great boost of spirit right now.

I AM SO HAPPY AND GRATEFUL TO BE A PART OF FREEREPUBLIC..... I CANNOT TELL YOU! I can't believe my good fortune to have found this website. It has saved my sanity since I first found all of you wonderful people several years ago!

AT LAST! People who think like I do and share my sense of humor! Snow Bunny and Billie, you and others have constantly raised my spirits and this is an example of WHY! This is outstanding! Yes, freepers are patriots and we are on the front lines....and we will remain there for all of our lives because we realize that freedom is not free. Chief Negotiator knew that and it is so wonderful that you have honored him so.

Freepers are the greatest and you two are an example of why this is so. Love you both! :o)

Thanks, Uncle. :^) You do know that Bunny was with Bob Hope on USO tours during Viet Nam, don't you? Go take a look at her profile page if you haven't before. You might have already visited it though.
