USO Canteen FReeper Style....Monday Mail Call ....July 8,2002
FRiends of the USO Canteen Freeper Style and Snow Bunny
Posted on 07/08/2002 1:43:56 AM PDT by Snow Bunny
Our troops need our support and encouragement. They are away from home, some for the first time, and usually lonely or discouraged. It is important for us to reach out and help them in the same way we would want someone to reach out to our loved ones if and when they are in the same position.
They answered their call and we are answering theirs offering them the USO Canteen FReeper Style each day and thanking them for serving.
This is IN Coming Mail from some of those serving now.
We at the USO Canteen FReeper Style, a running thread at Free Republic, are proud to support our Military. The mail comes in from contacting some of our Military Bases, Marine Corps Leagues , and friends and family of those serving now. Also from responses at the wonderful P.O.Box that 68-69TonkinGulfYatchClub has made so easily available to each of us here at Free Republic.
They are writing to those that frequent the FReeper USO Canteen to thank you for your support.
ALL the mail posted on Monday Mail Call is Recent Mail from the prior week.
Thank you for the tribute to Chesty Puller.
And one of your Bunny hugs to everyone
there for the best support a Marine could
ask for from back home.
My Dad served in the Marines in Vietnam
he doesnt talk about it much but this last
time I was home, we sat and talked for hours.
He is also a Freeper and showed me what FR
was and the Freeper USO Canteen.
He said he wished FR had been around when he
was serving. I can see what he means Freepers
are what I think about right after I think about
my Dad when I am over here.
Thank you and everyone at the Canteen .
Great music and fun day going to New York.
Victoria Delsoul and Aquamarine thanks for
the music it was the best. You read my mind
on most of the songs you played.
Your USO sure knows how to throw a party and
and how important liberty is to all of us.
Kisses to all the girls, and a special one for Victoria.
Snow Bunny and the Canteeners,
I get to see the Freeper USO Canteen each day and I have yet to be disappointed am a veteran of two wars and from seeing each of you and the Canteen,I can tell you I would go back again and fight in those same wars over again.
YOU all are what America is about!
I give you permission to add this to your Monday Mail Call day. I want everyone there to know we are out here and you make a difference in lives you touch. You see, each day I get up and after my physical therapy I come back home. The first thing I do is turn on my computer and come to Free Republic. I keep two screens open, one with the Canteen and the other with all the threads at FR that I read . The information at FR is top notch and usually before it is on my news here.
The anger builds sometimes as I read of things eating away at MY America. Then I read the Canteen screen and smile or a hearty laugh. It keeps me sane in a world gone half crazy with liberals.
Thank you for welcoming all of us Veterans home and for your marvelous support of our kids serving now. The Canteen is exactly how I remember the USO except for one BIG thing, Free Republics IS EVEN BETTER.
God be with each of you and your families that let you spend the time at the Canteen to make such a big difference in the life of an old worn out veteran.
In your service,
USNAVY Veteran and now lurker at FR
This is a special request, please use the top part of my letter to display
on your Mail Call Day.
First I would like you to know how much all the support I get at the
Freeper USO Canteen means to me. Thank you everyone there.
Victoria Delsoul can you hear me because this is for you.
I LOVE YOU !
There Ive said it and I feel much better now. Thank you for
making my days over here feel a little more like I am home.
The Canteen is my home away from home over here and Bunny
your gift to us with the Canteen is more then appreciated.
Admirer of the Freeper USO Canteen and Victoria, Thank you !
Snow Bunny please put this on your Monday Mail Call for the Bad Boys
My Mom wrote me an email and told me after reading my letters to her I had better check out Free Republics USO Canteen for Freepers. I finally did and now I am addicted to it. I dont know your real names, but the 4 Bad Boys here are Joe, Marty, Al, and myself Scully the Scrounger.
So far we have only been in trouble once, but that is because we had a little misunderstanding if you get what I mean. A guy has to do what a guy has to do after all. LOL
It is good to see we can carry on the fine tradition of Bad Boys that was set before us in you Veterans. Fine job men!
My mom likes it because she said there is hope for us over here when I tell her a little of what we have done. She says if we turn out to be the kind of Bad Boys she sees at the Freeper USO Canteen there is hope. Ya got to love Mom !
Mainly I , no we all want to thank you for the Freeper USO Canteen. There are some tuff days for us and you make them better.
Scully and the Pirates
Snow Bunny/Atilla the Bun ( honorary Marine)
Thank you and all of you that make such a great place online. My Uncle is with the National Guard and where they are right now, were not sure. Before he left he told me about the USO Canteen Freeper Style and also Jim Robinson founding Free Republic.
What a fine man Jim Robinson is and reading about him in the tribute you all did at the Canteen was very motivating to me. I have some favorite days there that I look forward to each week when I can get the time online:Themeless Thursday, Freeper Friday and when you do threads about different topics.
Tell LadyX she is beautiful and I am proud of her. She has raised a fine family besides being a lady Marine. We can always use more lady Marines like LadyX setting such a fine example.
All of your support means a lot over here.
Your friend, Love you Snow Bunny,
Thank you! You Freepers are grade A, First Class all the way!
Now SAMWolf we need to have a little talk here. I read your
Freeper Friday and saw you were in the Army. Now IF and I say IF
you had been a Marine you never would have been in that Volcano
in the first place. You would have taken those fine ladies, Misty CA,
and yes GREAT legs on that one, SpookBrat (the most delightful
personality ) and AntiJen ( got a crush on her) and led them away from
that nasty volcano.
But we cant all be Marines and you did give the ladies a fine time of it.
So I wont be too hard on you Sam.
You have it all at the Freeper USO Canteen. Humor that is great, not only
the jokes which I send back home to my family. But in heartfelt reaching
out in the truest support of the military I have ever seen.
Ladies go easy on Sam, LOL , Bad Boys need love too.
The Canteen just keeps getting better each time I check in. God bless each
Dear Snow Bunny,
You sure know how to make a guy feel at home. And to find so many
warm and loving people that gel like they do is nothing short of a
Thank you Jim Robinson for founding Free Republic and for the
phenomenal USO Canteen Freeper Style.
I would also like to give a special thank you to 68-69Tonkin Gulf
Yatch Club for the mail box. You do an exceptional job with it .
Jim Robinson, a lot of us here cant post as you understand , but we
want you to know that your life makes a difference in others you have
not met on your forum. Thank you Sir !
To Snow Bunny
I think my heart burst with pride the day I came to the FR web site.
read some things there and then stopped by the Canteen.
Thank you Patriots! One day when I can in the future I plan on
giving Victoria some turns, heck many turns on the dance floor.
Victoria, we will just let ole Sam play the records for the night,
you will be way too busy if you say yes. Dancing under the stars
with me. I took some notes from Tonkin at the last dance and from
one sailor to another he knows his stuff. So I trust you will not be
disappointed in my footwork.
Thank you for the thread about Ordies. My cousin is an Aviation
Ordnanceman and I sent him the web site that day in an email.You
all made his day.
Thank you may be just two words but it carrys with is a lot of
Hi Snow Bunny
I laugh so hard when I get to visit the Freeper USO Canteen.THANK YOU !

then turn around and play hard too. Leadpenny, I like your name and thank you for

Tribute To HEROES
If there's anything that identifies and personifies all military people, it's the dogtags.
It's one of the first things we get, and sometimes it's the last reminder of who we are.
They signify our unity of purpose and our dedication to our country.
Tribute to Vietnam Veterans
Please click on picture.
The great intangible of America's wars beyond logistics,
beyond strategy, beyond wonder weapons and Generals,
is the spiritual force of its fighting men and women -
and that is the force that the USO so serves.

He's at Camp LeJeune right now waiting for a training deployment to a ship.
He's 29 has 2 daughters under age 3 and is missing his family.
SAMWolf told her he would pass the Marines name and address onto the Canteen.

Hi John. It has been frustrating..., I cannot log on at home. The web guru's can't figure out why. I can now only do this from work. Aargh!
BTW, thanks, my bride and I had a good fourth - a great patriotic service at church yesterday capped it off. Hope yours was good too.

Today's feeble attempt at HUMOR:
A woman awakes during the night, and her husband isnít in bed with her. She goes downstairs to look for him. She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee in front of him. He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall. She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip of his coffee.
"What's the matter, dear?" she asks. "Why are you down here at this time of night?" The husband looks up from his coffee, "Do you remember 20 years ago when we were dating, and you were only 16?" he asks solemnly. "Yes, I do," she replies. "Do you remember when your father caught us in the back seat of my car making love?" "Yes, I remember," says the wife, lowering herself into a chair beside him.
The husband continues, "Do you remember when he shoved the shotgun in my face and said, 'Either you marry my daughter, or I'll send you to jail for 20 years?í" "I remember that, too," she replies softly. He wipes another tear from his cheek and says, "I would have gotten out today."
