USO Canteen FReeper Style- Thread 2
Snow Bunny and Billie | October 7, 2001 | Billie and Snow Bunny

Posted on 10/07/2001 5:28:37 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 .

These will be running threads, please stop by the Canteen day or night and post to our Troops and their families and enjoy some of the refreshments we will always have for you. God Bless you all and our troops and their families , our President and America.

Hi there, SB. I've got this big Rubbermaid container full of Chex Mix I made this afternoon,,,, NO PEANUTS,, Cashews Only,,, Nothing but the best for this USO crowd. Thought they might enjoy something a little salty with their brews as they dance.

SB, I noticed on the first thread that you are saving the couch for me,,, actually, laying down is sort of uncomfortable. I spend a lot of time recupping in a Big Bubba Lazy Boy (no cooler in the arm, tho). If you don't mind, I'll drag a recliner over in the corner and watch the action from there!

Coast Guard Auxiliary Needs YOU, M and F, 17 yrs and up (no high age limit)
No boat or experience needed, help needed in all fields, especially Search and Rescue Patrols

I just heard on the radio Coast Guard is at it's highest alert since WW II.
Coast Guard now in Dept of Defense as of Sept 11 instead of Dept of Transportation
I found this on Coast Guard Auxiliary website:
Thanks from the Commandant -- Today I received a call from ADM Loy, the Commandant of the Coast Guard. He called me to express his personal thanks and that of the Coast Guard for the response and service of Auxiliarists and the Auxiliary in providing the critical assistance needed for the Coast Guard to accomplish its missions and carry out its assignments during the last three weeks.
He said, "We couldn't have done it without you."


I'll be in District 13, Division 5 Flotilla 51 COOS BAY, OREGON

Donating to Free Republic and things like the USO BOTH will help keep America strong.

Thanks Billie.

The price of liberty, ya know...

Our nation is certainly getting a wake up call concerning what that price really is, eh?

Out here in the hinterlands, aka flyover country, every little town is swathed in red, white and blue. It's inspiring and very encouraging.

Thank God for all of those who have kept the flame of patriotism burning until the time when a raging fire is called for in the defense of liberty...

Bless you for doing your part.

Please everyone remember to say a prayer for our men and women who are in harm's way tonight.
They're taking the fight to the enemy tonight for us and our great country.
And don't forget those that are on embassy duty all over the world; they're especially vulnerable.

Looks real good, Snow Bunny. I got a Brother-In-Law a bit early out of this War. My Sis and her soon-to-be got married a day after he caught wind of shipping out, rather than waiting until next Spring. He's part of the Home-Land Defense. Former Paratrooper, now an MP. Gotta keep the shores safe!

My Sis doesn't know when the real ceremony will take place. She was married in a business suit while he sported his military BDU's!

Nice digital collage, above. Between my University classes, I hope to be stopping back from time to time.
